Patients First: A Practical Approach to Implementing Opioid Assessment into Practice – Part 1: A Patient’s Story

In response to the ongoing opioid crisis, ACP developed Opioid Guidelines to support and direct pharmacists when assessing patients who use opioid medications. Opioid medications potentially pose a significant hazard to patients and to the public and, in addition to pain management, pharmacists must be prepared to deal with the possibility of addiction, misuse, and drug diversion. Together, RxA and ACP hosted an opioid focused program aimed at helping pharmacists understand how to engage with a patient during an opioid assessment. This session describes a patient’s story.
