The Minnesota legislature authorized the Opioid Prescribing Improvement Program in 2015, which in turn called for the formation of a group of experts to recommend statewide prescribing guidelines.

This educational activity is a collaboration of the University of Minnesota and the Department of Human Services to provide physicians, nurses and pharmacists with an overview of the six essential guidelines, supplemental tools for assessment and pain management, as well as a series of case-based questions to examine opioid prescription and pain management.
