While regulations vary by state, every EMS agency in possession of controlled substances must comply with Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) requirements. To help explain these compliance considerations, TargetSolutions created an all-new online training course: Controlled Substance Compliance.

This course, paired with the Controlled Substances management solution in TargetSolutions Check It™, ensures departments can comply with DEA requirements for tracking the storage, transportation, usage, and disposal of narcotics.

This new online training course for DEA and controlled substance compliance is currently available at no additional charge with the purchase of Controlled Substances tracking in TargetSolutions Check It™.

About Controlled Substance Compliance

Controlled Substance Compliance provides an overview of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Title 21, Part 1300 by the DEA. These considerations apply to all DEA registrants – including EMS agencies that are registered as either Mid-Level Practitioners (MLP) – Ambulance Service or Practitioners.

By completing this video course, individuals will better understand the difference between state and federal controlled substance registrations, DEA security requirements, recordkeeping requirements and best practices. Consequently, agencies can ensure the proper storage and dispersal of controlled substances used during emergency medical care and transportation.

Each lesson is up to date with current regulations and uses an onscreen instructor to explain topics. This 30-minute course will cover:

  • State Registrations
  • Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Registrations
  • Security Requirements
  • Power of Attorney
  • Records and Reports
  • Disposal of Unused or Unwanted Controlled Substances
  • Clinical Waste of Partial Dose
  • Understanding the Role of the Medical Director with Controlled Substances
  • Ensuring Compliance
