Some of the items the bill is mandating is that Pharmacists will be checking the Controlled Substances Prescription Monitoring Program prior to dispensing an opioid prescription to improve patient safety, Prescribers will no longer be able to dispense opioids directly to the patient, Hospitals and emergency departments will be providing information on treatment resources to patients that are seen due to an overdose, Prescribers of controlled substances will be required to take continuing education related to opioids, People witnessing an overdose can call 911 and seek medical help without fear of prosecution if drugs or drug paraphernalia are at the scene ( Christ, Cara, et al.2019). New OARLine: Opioid Assistance + Referral Line for Arizona Providers: 1-888-688-4222 is available for health care clinicians to call for free consultation on patients with complex pain or opioid use disorder. The 24/7 hotline is staffed by experts at the Poison and Drug Information Centers in Arizona.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
