The Balanced Opioid Initiative: Making Workflow Changes in the Opioid Refill Process
The Balanced Opioid Initiative focuses on opioid prescribing for patients with chronic, non-cancer pain. This is session 2 of 6 educational meetings that are part of the initiative. This session will:
- Describe measures related to opioid prescribing
- Document your clinic's workflow related to refilling opioid prescriptions
- Identify a medium-term goal - one change that helps you reach the long-term goal
- Identify the first small change or changes you will make
- Evaluate progress; decide on the next small change(s)
- Continue making small changes until you reach the medium-term goal, and then repeat steps 4 to 6 with a new medium-term goal until you reach the overall goal
- Share what you have learned with others in the clinic
This activity is intended for physicians, physician assistants, nurses, and other interested health professionals.
