Controlled Substance Monitoring Database: Past, Present, and Future
The Controlled Substance Monitoring Database (CSMD), which helps providers and pharmacies monitor the prescribing of certain controlled substance, is alive and well in 49 of the 50 states in the United States. In this session, we will look at the history behind the CSMD, where we are today legislatively, and where we are going. The future of the opioid epidemic hinges on appropriate use of the CSMD, as well as many other facets. -Homing in on how the CSMD can be better utilized can potentially allow providers to be more successful in treating patients with chronic pain.
