Opioid Stewardship Education

Good Morning,

I am wondering what educational resources hospitals are using to meet the element of performance below related to pain assessment, management, and opioid use education for practitioners?

LD.04.03.13: Pain assessment and pain management, including safe opioid prescribing, are identified as an organizational priority for the hospital.

Elements of Performance:

3. The hospital provides staff and licensed independent practitioners with educational resources and programs to improve pain assessment, pain management, and the safe use of opioid medications based on the identified needs of its patient population.

Thank you for your insights.
