SB 1446

SB 1446 addresses the over-prescription of opioids by requiring doctors and chronic- pain patients to enter into a treatment agreement. Requires a patient be staged through a limited initial prescription, a limited second prescription, and then be formally advised that continued opioid use can result in addiction. This bill also requires all physicians to receive no less than one hour of education in pain management or one hour of  opioid use or addiction each year preceding application for renewal of license.
