The Prescription Monitoring Program: a Clinical Tool in Improving Prescribing Decisions

  • The Illinois State Medical Society (ISMS) strongly advocates registration in, and usage of, the state's prescription monitoring program (PMP). As part of that effort, earlier this year ISMS and ISMIE Mutual Insurance Company hosted a web-based conversation with Randy Malan, former Clinical Director of the Illinois PMP, about how physicians can address the opioid crisis in Illinois through use of the PMP.

Malan also discusses how prescribers can recognize clinical issues associated with opioid medication and anxiolytics.
