Signed into law in 2018, Oklahoma's Senate Bill 1446 mandates that all physicians complete one hour of CME in pain management per year. To help Oklahoma's physicians better understand how this law affects their practice and patients, the Oklahoma State Medical Association is hosting live virtual CMEs. This one-hour event offers insight to the legal issues affecting pain management and an overview of the new laws connected with prescribing opioids to patients. 

All Oklahoma physicians with a DEA license are required to take this one-hour course annually.
