North Carolina Foot & Ankle Society

Podiatric Physicians Providing Medical and Surgical Care

Opioid Abuse & Prescribing Training Requirement

The NC General Assembly enacted S.L. 2015-241, s. 12F, 16(b) and (c) requiring that the NC Board of Podiatry Examiners (NCBPE) require one hour of continuing medical education each year on prescribing practices and controlled substance prescribing for chronic pain management.

The Society held a one hour training program at the 2016 Winter Scientific Seminar and will continue to do so each year. Those who do not attend the Seminar should refer to the NCBPE website for additional guidance.
