Opioid prescribing and practices in Ohio emergency departments

From Science Daily:

“This is a comprehensive look at how ED administrators perceive the role of state guidelines,” says principal investigator Neil MacKinnon, PhD, dean of UC’s James L. Winkle College of Pharmacy, noting that the survey results will be presented to the International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP) in September 2017.

In the survey, the UC research team queried 163 Ohio hospital administrators and ED physicians to determine the extent and level of adoption of the 2014 Ohio Emergency and Acute Care Facility Opioids and Other Controlled Substances (OOCS) prescribing guidelines and to garner feedback and recommendations for improvements that would assist with implementation.
