The Guide addresses six critical elements that can support users through a process of implementing a data-driven approach to an opioid stewardship program: 1) developing a leadership strategy; 2) conducting an environmental
scan of available resources, existing efforts and available data; 3) selecting measures; 4) setting goals and developing an improvement plan to drive progress on those measures; 5) creating policies and education for care teams; and 6) providing patient education and engaging patients in shared decision-making. We believe that these elements lay the foundation for driving and measuring progress in opioid stewardship.
