Surveys and other data indicate most health systems are still in the early development stages with Opioid Stewardship. While early opioid-related regulations and many improvement efforts have particularly targeted outpatient care, improving judicious use of opioids in the inpatient setting is a critically important. We will discuss opportunities for pharmacy to lead opioid stewardship efforts and describe some initial practices for launching your efforts.
During this presentation, you will learn:
- Describe three target areas or patient populations for early opioid stewardship effort
- Discuss how to establish metrics for opioid use (and pain management) that will ensure you can measure performance improvement.
- Establish pharmacist clinical activities targeting opioid use and pain management goals.
