Opioid Epidemic

The opioid epidemic: information and resources for the health care provider

This administrative rule was changed in an effort to assist physicians in reducing patients' abuse and misuse of pain medications. Healthcare providers face the challenge of minimizing the potential for misuse of these important medications without impeding patients’ access to needed medical care.  Read more about the opioid epidemic

That’s why emergency preparedness in a hospital setting is an important topic emerging nationwide and something all health care providers need to be actively aware of.  Read more about health care violence
