Coming June 1, TMA is pleased to introduce the MATE Act Education Course.
Beginning June 27, most prescribers with a DEA license are required to complete a one-time eight hours of education on the treatment and management of patients with substance use disorders before applying for, or renewing, a DEA registration unless an exception is applicable.
This new one-time training requirement on managing patients with substance abuse disorders was part of the Medication Access and Training Expansion (MATE) Act, which passed in December 2022.
What makes this offering unique is its applicability to all Tennessee prescribers.** It not only fulfills this new DEA education requirement, but it will also satisfy the Tennessee licensing boards’ requirement for prescribers to complete a two-hour course on prescribing practices.
