In 2016, the Oregon Health Authority convened a Task Force to develop statewide opioid prescribing guidelines. These guidelines will support Oregon's initiative to address the epidemic of opioid use, misuse, and overdose by optimizing care, improving patient safety, and providing a consistent framework for endorsement and implementation at the local level. View the Task Force charter and membership (pdf).
November 18, 2016, Oregon's Opioid Prescribing Guidelines Task Force approved adoption of Oregon-specific opioid prescribing guidelines (pdf) based on the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Guideline for Prescribing Opioids for Chronic Pain. The guideline includes recommendations to improve patient safety and care for those with chronic pain, and address the ongoing prescription opioid overdose epidemic.
