TRACK: Regulatory, Legal, Military, and Governmental OEM
This session will bring together leaders in the drug and alcohol testing arena to discuss difficult and challenging problems encountered by the MRO. Such problems include the issues of spousal use of medications, the use of medical marijuana, and the increase in the use and misuse of prescription opioid medications. In addition to these challenges, speakers will address the “how to” process of navigating through a DOT audit and will bring a TPA and drug testing laboratory perspective to the policy issues that MROs are often asked about. Lastly, “MRO
Jeopardy” will be presented which uses a fun, game-show-oriented teaching method to make participants aware of new and interesting information germane to the practicing MRO. This session is sponsored by the Medical Review Officers Special Interest Section.
