Description

Our country is in the midst of an opioid crisis. Every day, 115 Americans die from an opioid overdose. Almost half of those deaths (46) occur from prescribed opioids, and research indicates that the majority of illicit opioid users (such as heroin and fentanyl) started with misusing prescription opioids. Many states are passing legislation in response to the opioid epidemic, putting orthopaedic practice professionals in a quandary – providing optimal patient care while facing growing regulations to address the crisis.


This e-book provides resources, samples, and peer advice for your practice in addressing the use of opioids. Also included are resources to understand your state’s legislation, as well as federal policies combating the current crisis. And the e-book wraps up with an overview of AAOE position statements that you are encouraged to use with your legislators.
