NSPMP Announcement: Benzodiazepine Integration



As part of the 2017-2020 Strategic Plan, the NSPMP will begin to integrate benzodiazepine data as part of our monitoring activities on Saturday, October 20th (12:01am).


Important information for prescribers and pharmacies:


·        Benzodiazepine prescribers who are not currently registered with NSPMP will need to complete a registration form to obtain an NSPMP ID by October 20th to avoid having their prescriptions held at the pharmacy.


·        Benzodiazepines prescriptions will continue to be written on regular prescription pads (duplicate pads are not required)


·        Benzodiazepine prescribing histories will be available via NSPMP’s e-Access portal on October 20th


For more information, please review our October 4th 2018 Media Release and the benzodiazepine information outlined in our Frequently Asked Questions document.
