Webinar: Michigan Safer Opioid Prescribing Toolkit
Despite a 30% reduction nationwide in new opioid prescriptions since 2012, prescription opioid overprescribing, as well as opioid misuse and overdose remain significant U.S. public health issues. To address a deficit in educational resources/tools for clinical providers and their patients, the Injury Prevention Center (UM-IPC), in partnership with the Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS), created the Michigan Safer Opioid Prescribing Toolkit, a comprehensive, evidence-based, on-line resource.
Michigan Safer Opioid Prescribing Toolkit resources were developed across seven domains, including background resources on pain and pain management, management strategies for chronic opioid use and opioid use disorders, non-opioid/non-pharmacological pain management, opioid pain management, prescribing laws, just-in-time resources, and special populations. This toolkit is one of the first fully online, comprehensive, evidence-based clinical resources to address the opioid epidemic.
By attending this free 30-minute webinar, attendees will get a firsthand look at the Michigan Safer Opioid Prescribing Toolkit and what it has to offer.
