Improving Safe Opiate Prescribing: Integrating a Certified Alcohol and Substance Abuse Counselor into a Family Medicine Training Practice
At our Family Medicine Center, a training site for Family Medicine residents, family nurse practitioner residents, post-doctoral psychology fellows, pharmacy interns, and marriage and family therapy interns, we have developed policies and procedures to improve patient safety among those patients who are prescribed opioid medications for chronic pain. This includes initiating naloxone training for patients at risk, integrating a Certified Alcohol and Substance Abuse Counselor (CASAC) into a Family Medicine Training Practice, and working with patients to decrease their opiate prescriptions as appropriate to the clinical situation.
