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 monitor "real-time" opioid prescribing and also make this information available across state lines as one way to address the public health problem of prescription drug abuse.
