Pain Management Education Program Requirements

(1) Licensed health care professionals must complete a pain management education program in order to improve the care and treatment of individuals with painful conditions. The program includes:

(a) Six accredited hours of continuing education in pain management, end of life care or a combination of both; and

(b) The web-based training offered by the Commission.

(c) Dentists licensed under Oregon Board of Dentistry are only required to complete the web-based training offered by the Commission.

(2) For out of state health care professionals obtaining Oregon licensure or newly licensed health care professionals within Oregon, the pain management education program must be completed within 24 months of their first license renewal.

Example: If an individual becomes newly licensed in Oregon on June 15, 2009, their first renewal will be June 15, 2011. The individual may obtain their training from June 15, 2009 through June 15, 2013 under section (2) to comply with this requirement.

(3) If the licensing board for a licensed health care professional adopts, by rule, a pain management education program with topics substantially similar to the topics in the Commission’s curriculum, that program satisfies this rule for the continuing education portion of the requirement, as long as the total number of hours is the same.

(4) The Commission shall review its curriculum every two years and update as needed.

Rules Adopted: 409-045-0000

Subject: The Oregon Health Authority, Office for Oregon Health Policy and Research is adopting temporary administrative rules to comply with the mandates in ORS 442.807, as amended by the 75th Legislative Assembly in section 768, chapter 595, 2009 Oregon Laws (Enrolled House Bill 2009). That legislation transferred the rulemaking authority for adoption of credentialing and recredentialing procedures and standards related to health care service contractors from the Department of Consumer and Business Services and the Department of Human Services to the Oregon Health Authority.

      Until receiving recommended changes from the Advisory Committee on Physician Credentialing, the rules last amended by the Department of Consumer and Business Services functioned to provide the necessary forms and procedures. Because changes are now being made, it is necessary to complete the transfer of the substance of the rule to the Oregon Health Authority. These temporary rules will establish the new rule in the Oregon Health Authority and incorporate the recommendations of the advisory committee until permanent rules can be adopted. Concurrently, the Department of Business and Consumer Services is adopting a temporary suspension of the rule adopted under prior authority and will begin permanent rulemaking to repeal that rule (OAR 836-052-0900).

      These temporary rules are available on the OHPR Website: http://www.oregon.gov/OHA/OHPR/rulemaking/index.shtml.

Physician Credentialing, Health Care Service Contractors

(1) The Oregon Practitioner Credentialing Application and the Oregon Practitioner Recredentialing Application, both of which were approved by the Advisory Committee on Physician Credentialing Information (ACPCI) on September 22, 2008, and both of which carry that date, are adopted with respect to hospitals and health care service contractors as Exhibits 1 and 2 to this rule.

(2) Each hospital and health care service contractor shall use the application forms adopted in section (1) of this rule.

(3) This rule is adopted pursuant to the authority of ORS 442.807 for the purpose of enabling the collection of uniform information necessary for hospitals and health care service contractors to credential physicians seeking designation as a participating practitioner for a health plan, thereby implementing ORS 442.800 to 442.807 with respect to hospitals and health care service contractors.
