Brent Moore, PhD, Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at Yale University, details interventions throughout pain management at the American Pain Society 33rd Annual Scientific Meeting, held April 30, 2014, to May 3, 2014, in Tampa, FL.

To collect data for their study, the researchers chronicled receipt of opioid prescriptions, opioid agreements, and urine toxicology reports over a period of 4 yearsy. Factors included standardizations, education, training programs, rapid-improvement workshops, round table meetings, work groups, pain champions, and electronic notes.

“Prescriptions for opioids for individuals that had chronic opioid care, which was greater than 90 days, decreased over that time period, and remained stable for those receiving less than 90 days,” Moore says. 

The other factors were whether individuals had an opioid agreement or annual urine toxicology reports.
