Opioid Act 124 Mandatory Training is now available as a recorded event. This event fulfills the new law mandating two hours of CME training for all providers who have a DEA license. The training is required prior to your next re-licensure, which is Oct. 31 for DOs and Dec. 31 for MDs. Go to www.lghealth.org/cme and click on CME on Demand. You’ll see the training at the top in Featured Materials. Or click here to be taken directly to the course and use your LGH username (what you use for Epic) to log in. After you take the course, you must complete a post test and an evaluation to receive your credits. For more help, see the attached Tip Sheet.
