Michigan Opioid Prescribing Engagement Network with Dr. Jennifer Waljee
America's Opioid drug epidemic has struck hard in Michigan, but now a team from University of Michigan is striking back.
The Michigan Opioid Prescribing Engagement Network (Michigan-OPEN) is an initiative to develop a novel preventative approach to the opioid epidemic in the state of Michigan.
The vast majority of individuals who become dependent on prescription opioids receive their first dose following surgical care. Michigan OPEN aims to ensure appropriate acute pain care following surgery, while protecting patients and communities.
