Romania: changing the regulatory environment



Romania: changing the regulatory environment



Journal of Pain and Symptom Management 33(5): 610-614



Access to the necessary medications for palliative care, especially opioids, is an essential part in the development of a national palliative care program. In November 2005, Romania's Parliament adopted new legislation concerning the medical use of opioids and psychotropic substances to replace the old and restrictive legislation of 1969. The new law and regulations are the result of a four-year project in which governmental authorities collaborated with health care professionals and international experts. The World Health Organization "Achieving Balance in National Opioids Control Policy--Guidelines for Assessment" was used to propose balanced legislation that would facilitate modern pain management and provide adequate control of these substances with the potential for abuse. A national education program to facilitate the implementation of the new legislation has been organized. The training started in November 2006 and will continue throughout 2007. It is anticipated that at least 3,000 doctors and 500 pharmacists will attend these courses.
