Course Description and Purpose:
The Florida Prescription Drug Monitoring Program, known as E-FORCSE® (Electronic-Florida Online Reporting of Controlled Substance Evaluation Program), was created by the 2009 Florida Legislature in an initiative to encourage safer prescribing of controlled substances to reduce drug abuse and diversion within the state of Florida. Controlled substance dispensing information is submitted to the database by dispensers and made available for consultation by prescribers.
Each Prescriber and dispenser or his designee has a duty to consult the PDMP system to review a patient's controlled substance dispensing history each time a controlled substance is prescribed or dispensed to a patient age 16 or older unless a statutory exemption applies.
The Florida Medical Association is pleased to partner with the Florida Department of Health and the PDMP Foundation to offer this course on demand so that physicians will be in a better position to utilize the PDMP database, E-FORCSE, and more effectively address prescription drug controlled substance abuse and misuse. Completing this course will also enable physicians to complete the process for obtaining individual and state prescribing practices and summaries.
As a result of participating in this activity, participants should be able to:
- Discuss the Florida Prescription Drug Monitoring Program Database Electronic-Florida Online Reporting of Controlled Substances (F-FORCSE) and the role of the Florida PDMP
- Observe the law and rules surrounding the prescribing and dispensing of controlled substances
- Understand the disciplinary actions related to the PDMP requirements
- Recognize the value of PDMP database information
- Utilize available prescribing information technology
