Change in URL to DoD Opioid Prescriber Safety Training Program

Posted on Updated on

BACKGROUND: All prescribing providers caring for TRICARE beneficiaries in military treatment facilities (MTFs) are required to complete the initial opioid prescriber safety training program (OPST) upon starting work in the MTF and every 3 years (or as otherwise directed) afterwards. This on line training had been located at https://opstp.cds.pesgce.com/hub.php as published in Defense Health Agency Procedural Instruction, Number 6025.04, dated, 8 June 2018.  The web address was changed in November 2018 to:

https://dhaj7.adobeconnect.com/opioidtraining18/event/registration.html

Although a message was distributed at that time, the DHA Chief Medical Officer has learned that some MTFs may be referring to the DHAPI in search of this training module. The DHAPI will be updated with the correct web address. However, DHA requests you make widest dissemination of the new web address so that prescribing providers are not impeded in their effort to certify in this required training.

 KEY MESSAGES: 

  • The web address for the DoD Opioid Prescriber Safety Training Program published in the Defense Health Agency Procedural Instruction, Number 6025.04, dated, 8 June 2018 has changed.  The new url is:

https://dhaj7.adobeconnect.com/opioidtraining18/event/registration.html

  • All prescribing providers caring for TRICARE beneficiaries in MTFs are required to complete initial OPST upon starting work in the MTF and every 3 years (or as otherwise directed) afterwards.
  • The web address to OPST changed after DHAPI 6025.04 was published. A message was distributed alerting users to the new web address in November 2018, however the DHA Chief Medical Officer has learned that the new web address may not have reached across the entire MHS.
  • An update to DHAPI 6025.04 is pending. Until then, please make widest dissemination possible of the new web address for the DoD Opioid Prescriber Safety Training Program.
