SB 530 — Nonopioid Alternatives

by Senator Perry

This summary is provided for information only and does not represent the opinion of any Senator, Senate Officer, or Senate Office.

The bill amends s. 456.44, F.S., to allow a specific educational pamphlet, which must be provided to health care patients or their representatives under certain circumstances, to be provided electronically or in printed form, instead of only in printed form as required under current law. The pamphlet contains information on the use of nonopioid alternatives for the treatment of pain and must be provided when a patient will receive anesthesia or will be prescribed certain opioid medications.

If approved by the Governor, these provisions take effect July 1, 2021.
