    PeerJ 2019; 7:e8108Ighodaro EO, McCall KL, … Piper BJ
  • CONCLUSIONS: Collectively, these findings indicate that continued vigilance is needed in Texas to appropriately treat pain and an OUD while minimizing the potential for prescription opioid diversion and misuse. Texas may lead the US in a return to pre-opioid epidemic prescription levels.

    Pain Physician 2019; 22(6):E551-E562Hopkins RE, Bui T, … Dooley M

Further research, particularly high quality randomized studies, describing the impact of education on all available opioid formulations and total MME is required. Reviewing the existing literature has offered useful models that can be implemented to improve care with opioid prescribing in acute settings.
