Painkiller Law: Criminal & Other Legal Issues for Doctors Who Prescribe Controlled Drugs

$95.00

Re-Broadcast on November 4, 2016

The prescription drug crisis in the United States has taken many lives and changed millions more forever. Physicians are frequently targeted by law enforcement for criminal prosecution, licensing proceedings, and are in plaintiffs’ lawyers’ sights for civil suits. This course discusses the crisis, law enforcement efforts against physicians, what can trigger an investigation, and what doctors can do – with help from counsel – to keep patients safe and stay out of trouble.

Key topics to be discussed:

  • The U.S. Prescription Drug Crisis – past, present and future
  • Targeting of Doctors By Law Enforcement
  • What Can Trigger a Criminal Investigation of a Prescriber
  • The Interrelationship Between Law Enforcement, Licensing, and Lawsuits
  • Helping Doctors Before They Get Into Trouble

Accreditation Policy
myLawCLE will seek credit where attending attorneys are primarily licensed for all of its live webinars and live teleconferences, except in states which allow for reciprocity (see reciprocity section below). Credit for CLE in a self-study format is sought for in most states; however, some states do not allow for CLE credit to be earned in a self-study format (see the self-study section below). Many states typically decide whether a program qualifies for MCLE credit in their jurisdiction 4-8 weeks after the program application is submitted. For many live events, credit approval is not received prior to the program. Credit hours granted are subject to approval from each state.

Reciprocity
Additionally, some states allow for credit to be granted on a 1:1 reciprocal basis for courses approved in another mandatory CLE jurisdiction state. This is known as a reciprocity provision and includes the following states: AK, AR, CO, FL, ME, MT, ND, NH, NJ, NY, PR, and SD. myLawCLE does not seek direct accreditation of live webinars or teleconferences in these states.

On-demand CLE
myLawCLE will seek on-demand approval in all states except Virginia and Arkansas (outside reciprocal provisions stated above).
