2015 Opiate Prescription Guidelines


Future directions:

  • Creating a professional sounding board to provide peer support and decrease liability surrounding the prescription of opiates/other controlled medications to high-risk patients. This goal will be accomplished with M&M style meetings where members will present patient cases and receive feedback.
  • Provide commentary on the new guidelines for opiate prescription.
  • Contribute to public education on pain management practices.
  • Meet with a representative of the medical board to clarify new opioid prescribing guidelines.
