Opioid Prescribing Guidelines

After studying other state and national recommendations, the Opioid Prescribing Guidelines for Oklahoma Workgroup created guidelines for Oklahoma prescribers in 2017. The guidelines were developed to help improve communication between clinicians and patients about the risks and benefits of opioid therapy for pain management, improve the safety and effectiveness of pain treatment, and reduce the risks associated with long-term opioid therapy, including opioid use disorder, overdose, and death, while preserving patient access to needed medical treatment.
