Acute Pain Orderset

We are beginning to take a closer look at opioid utilization in the inpatient setting with the goal of reducing use of opioids, especially IV route, in our inpatient adult surgical population. There are both safety (less adverse events) and economic (reduction of LOS) reasons to pursue this. While some of our service lines have had ERAS protocols in place, we would like to take a more holistic approach for all service lines by developing guidelines and revising order set(s). Would anyone be willing to share your Acute Pain Management order set, or share any other tips from an opioid stewardship perspective?
