Caplan & Earnest, one of the largest health law practices in the state with unrivaled experience in Colorado legal and regulatory requirements, has released the recording from their October webinar outlining DORA’s updated Guidelines for the Safe Prescribing & Dispensing of Opioids, which is endorsed by multiple licensing agencies, and Senate Bill 18-022, signed in May of this year, which resulted in substantive changes to various practice acts. Both DORA’s Guidelines and the new law instruct on changes that may result in a provider’s practice becoming more restrictive and conservative when prescribing or dispensing opioids.

Any provider who prescribes or dispenses opioids – doctors, advanced practice nurses, physician assistants, dentists, pharmacists, and others – faces the challenge of staying on top of the changing legal landscape as the government reacts to the opioid epidemic.
