Opioid Stewardship Toolkit
Americans are more likely to die from an opioid overdose than they are in a motor vehicle accident, according to a 2019 report by the National Safety Council. Although these therapies have a legitimate role in pain management, responsible stewardship is crucial to ensure prescribing practices that minimize misuse. MEDITECH's Opioid Stewardship Toolkit addresses this top healthcare priority by helping your care teams to reduce opioid-related harm.
