Drugs, Opposition to Mandatory Education for Drug Prescribing

 

The AAFP opposes legislation or executive action that would require mandatory education of family physicians as a condition for prescribing specific drugs, such as opioids. The AAFP supports programs that would provide funding to all states to continue or to develop prescription drug monitoring programs and to make the interstate exchange of monitoring information easily available to prescribers and dispensers.
