Working For You

MSD Responds to Opioid Prescribing Regulations Revisions Expected To Be Published in February
As part of the regulatory process, MSD provided feedback and proposed improved language to the Delaware Division of Professional Regulation regarding the opioid prescribing regulations recently published in the January 2017 Delaware Register of Regulations. Specifically, new language was proposed that would provide clarity when initially prescribing opioids for acute pain, including post-procedural acute pain, as well as for subsequent prescriptions regardless of an inpatient or outpatient discharge. We anticipate that these enhancements will be published in the February Register of Regulations with an effective date of April 1, 2017. Moving forward, the Medical Society will continue to take a leadership role and collaborate with the state on education materials and activities for prescribers and patients.  

The new regulations, which will take effect April 1, will require prescribers to query the Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP) much more frequently than most physicians do now. Consider beginning to use the system now to familiarize yourself with its features. You may also want to register delegates who may access the PMP on your behalf.  Learn more about the PMP.
