Controlled Substances - MDM Risk Table

  • 1.  Controlled Substances - MDM Risk Table

    Posted 14 days ago
    Hi all,
    Clinic or ED patient gets an RX for an oral controlled substance.  Do you count this as high in the table of risk?  I understand what parenteral is, but I have heard from our providers, and at ED conferences we should be counting these as high.

    What has been your practice?

    Thank you in advance,
    Christina
