Supreme Court Latest Changes on Controlled Substances Act to Protect Doctors Criminally Prosecuted for Overprescribing
Learn on the types of legal actions against doctors and other prescribers for over-prescribing scheduled drugs in state licensure laws vs. criminal laws
The Supreme Court recently set a new, high standard for criminal prosecutions under the Controlled Substances Act making it much harder to prosecute doctors for alleged violations, and how these new standards protect doctors who use their professional skill and judgment in writing prescriptions for pain killers.
Join this webinar by healthcare attorney, Mark R. Brengelman, where he discusses some basics of the standard of care and examples of state licensure laws applicable to doctors who prescribe scheduled drugs. These rules also apply to other health care professionals with prescriptive authority under state law and a certificate to prescribe scheduled drugs from the federal government. The webinar also segues into an overview of the Controlled Substances Act and how doctors and other prescribers are vulnerable to criminal prosecution.
Erase the fear, uncertainty, and doubt about the new standards from the Supreme Court which now protect doctors and the proper application of their discretion and their professional judgement from prosecutors bent on jailing doctors as part of the war on drugs.
