Can CME hours credited for ACLS be counted in the patient safety/ risk management requirement?
Dr Sandra Eglick Harkavy
Thank you for your question related to the opioid training requirement for licensure renewal 2017/2018. Prescribers who do not maintain an active DEA are exempt from opioid training as stated in PAMED's FAQ: State CME Licensure Requirements for MDs. Link to website article:
Exemptions for prescribers who do not have their own DEA registration number — For physicians seeking re-licensure, the two-hour CME requirement does not apply to a prescriber who 1) is exempt from the Drug Enforcement Administration’s (DEA) requirements for registration under its applicable laws and regulations, as well as any state law; and 2) does not use the registration of another person or entity as permitted by law to prescribe controlled substances in any manner. The exemption applies unless a physician has a DEA registration number or prescribes under another individual or entity’s DEA registration number.
NI know that you need child abuse one of the above has addressed requirements for retired license. I know that you need to do child abuse requirement, but how about retired physician who does not have DEA number and only prescribes unrestricted drugs for self or family- do we still have to get opiod CME for renewal? I cannot find this anywhere in the data of medical society. would appreciate as timely and accurate answer.
