20-HB1917/SB1912 – Vaughan/Reeves
This bill adds non-opioid medicinal drugs or drug products and occupational therapy to the list of alternative treatments that must be disclosed and explained by a healthcare practitioner to a patient or the patient's legal representative as a prerequisite to obtaining informed consent to treatment with an opioid.
We support this bill and wish it weren't necessary.
