CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE REGISTRATION
Applying For NEW Controlled Substance Registration
All practitioners who are APPLYING for a Delaware controlled substance registration (CSR) must complete a mandatory ONE-hour, two-part course pertaining to safe prescribing and distributing of controlled substances, treatment of pain, and recognizing and treating opioid use disorder.
To fulfill the mandatory course requirement (applying for NEW CSR) the Division of Professional Regulation (Office of Controlled Substances) offers the only approved course. This is a two-part course. Both courses are available at:Mandatory CSR Webinar. This mandatory course qualifies as acceptable continuing education, for one-hour of CME, only once.
RENEWING Controlled Substance Registration
All active Controlled Substance Registrations must be renewed in DELPROS every TWO years before the expiration date. During renewal, you are asked to attest to completing two hours of continuing education (CE) in the areas of
· Controlled substance prescribing practices
· Treatment of chronic pain
· Other topics related to prescribing controlled substances.
Note: If you complete at least two hours of CE in the above specific areas in connection with your practitioner license, you may use the same CE to satisfy the two-hour requirement for your controlled substance registration.
For information about CE requirements and audits, click on the Continuing Education and Audit Information webpage or see Section 3.1.3 of the Rules and Regulations. After renewal, a percentage of licensees are randomly selected for audit of their CE.
