On June 22, 2016, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed legislation related to opioids and treatment for opioid addiction. Included provisions require licensed professionals who prescribe controlled substances to complete a cumulative three hours of continuing education and training in pain management, palliative care, and addiction every three years. In limited cases, the Department of Health may exempt licensed prescribers from this requirement.

 

To read the complete legislation, see Chapter 71 of the Laws of 2016.
