NCHA Partners on Video To Educate Patients on Opioids

The Prevention and Safe Pain Management workgroup, part of the Coalition for Model Opioids Practices in Health Systems, identified a need to educate patients about their opioid prescription and spent the past year researching, planning, and executing the video process. The NCHA Opioid Patient Education Video was created by the University of California Davis Center for Design in the Public Interest. It was funded by the NC Department of Public Health’s Injury and Violence Prevention Branch and is available for public use. The intended audience is for adults (18 and older) who are being prescribed an opioid for either chronic or an acute condition (i.e. post-surgical). The video can be shown in both inpatient (hospital) and outpatient (primary care, specialty care) settings, community/patient education events, or through patient-facing electronic medical record portals. More details are online here. NCHA members are encouraged to use and share the video. For questions on how to embed this video into your system or any other questions, contact Madison Ward Willis at The Coalition for Model Opioids Practices in Health Systems is a partnership between NCHA and the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services. Within the coalition, there are three working groups: Prevention and Safe Pain Management, Health System Response, and Healthcare Worker Diversion Efforts.
