Opioid Prescriber Training Program

Effective July 22, 2016, Public Health Law Article 33 §3309-a was updated to require prescribers with a Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) number and medical residents prescribing under a facility DEA number to complete a minimum of three (3) hours of course work or training in pain management, palliative care and addiction. This Opioid Prescriber Training Program for prescribers was developed to meet this need, providing education on all of the topics included in the mandate.

Buprenorphine Education Program

The goal of this program is to increase the number of patients in New York State being treated for opioid use disorder (OUD) with buprenorphine.
