With thousands of people in the United States dying of opioid overdose each month, the opioid epidemic has become a serious public health concern. Legislators have attempted to address this problem at various levels of the government. Evaluation of outcomes of these measures is a necessary part of resolving the epidemic. Our survey was designed to evaluate the impact of measures enacted in Florida State in 2018 upon prescribing practices of plastic surgeons.

The development of guidelines for opioid prescribing, including those from the Society of Hospital Medicine and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, has been associated with changes in pres...
Facial fractures are painful injuries routinely managed by opioids after surgical repair. Studies have identified patient risk factors and prescribing patterns associated with opioid use in medicine a...
The objective of this study was to evaluate surgeon-prescribing patterns and opioid use for patients undergoing common otolaryngology surgeries. We hypothesized that there was little consistency acros...
Safe opioid prescribing practices are critical to mitigate the risk of prescription opioid overdose in adolescents and young adults. However, studies that examine opioid prescribing patterns associate...
Narrow definitions of long-term opioid (LTO) use result in limited knowledge of the full range of LTO prescribing patterns and the rates of these patterns.
This is a study of emergency physicians' prescribing patterns related to opioid (narcotic) medications. We are trying to determine whether giving providers access to their own prescribing ...
The research design is a randomized prospective clinical trial comparing Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) guided drainage of WON using FCSEMS and plastic stents. The trial will be conducted at ...
Changes in prescribing will be compared in prescribers from specialties whose prescribing is hypothesized to be relatively unaffected by the REMS (such as oncologists and hospice providers...
Analyze baseline concurrent opioid prescribing metrics at the individual prescriber level in the Duke Health System on the identified three main outcome measures. Test the impact of repor...

The state of society as it exists or in flux. While it usually refers to society as a whole in a specified geographical or political region, it is applicable also to restricted strata of a society.
A synthetic opioid that is used as the hydrochloride. It is an opioid analgesic that is primarily a mu-opioid agonist. It has actions and uses similar to those of MORPHINE. It also has a depressant action on the cough center and may be given to control intractable cough associated with terminal lung cancer. Methadone is also used as part of the treatment of dependence on opioid drugs, although prolonged use of methadone itself may result in dependence.

A class of opioid receptors recognized by its pharmacological profile. Kappa opioid receptors bind dynorphins with a higher affinity than endorphins which are themselves preferred to enkephalins.
A class of opioid receptors recognized by its pharmacological profile. Mu opioid receptors bind, in decreasing order of affinity, endorphins, dynorphins, met-enkephalin, and leu-enkephalin. They have also been shown to be molecular receptors for morphine.
