Educational Needs Assessment

In 2010 prescription drug abuse hit an all-time high in Florida. Florida led the nation in diverted prescription drugs. Florida was at the forefront of the drug abuse problem because Florida did not have a strong oversight of physician prescribing practices, and there was not a prescription drug monitoring program. Laws and regulations have changed, and there is significantly less pain management clinics registered in Florida. Pharmacists must now complete the required continuing education course on controlled substances at each renewal cycle.



Educational Objectives

At the completion of this home study activity, pharmacists will be able to: Describe how to ensure access to controlled substances for all patients with a valid prescription; Use the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program’s Database; Assess prescriptions for appropriate therapeutic value; Detect prescriptions that are not based on a legitimate medical purpose; Describe the laws and rules related to the prescribing and dispensing of controlled substances.
