Free Resources for Healthcare Practices - Opioid Education

Our country is in the midst of an opioid crisis that touches the lives of everyone, particularly those of us working in healthcare.


Does your practice have policies and procedures in place?


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 

orthopedic and other healthcare practice professionals on the front line, providing optimal patient care while facing growing regulations to address the crisis.

Get the help you need now, starting with the free download of the ADDRESSING THE OPIOID EPIDEMIC e-book.


You'll find useful resources and samples for your healthcare practice, including:

  • How to create an opioid policy for your practice,
  • Samples of practice policies,
  • State Legislation and Federal Policies on opioids, and
  • Additional related resources.
