Increasing Awareness of Opioid Disposal in the Orthopedic Patient Population

Researchers are trying to determine if providing education on proper disposal of unused opioid medications to the orthopedic patient undergoing a planned hip or knee total joint replacement will increase the percentage of patients who properly dispose of unused opioids.

Opioid Use, Storage, and Disposal Among Pediatric Patients After Surgery

Opioids are an important component of post-operative pain management among children, but are often prescribed in excess and rarely disposed of appropriately. The lack of prompt and proper opioid disposal after recovery from surgery is contributing to the opioid crisis in Ohio by placing children at risk of accidental ingestion of opioids remaining in the home and allowing for unused opioids to be diverted for non-medical use. The investigators propose to reduce the burden of th...

Safe Return and Disposal of Unused Opioids

The opioid epidemic in the United States has become a clear health and safety concern for our children and families. Opioids given to our patients for the treatment of pain that go unused after the immediate post operative period pose a major hazard when left in the home unattended. Opioids can be accidentally ingested by small children or deliberately ingested by pre-teens and adolescents leading to major morbidity and or death. Additionally, studies have shown that many peopl...

Impacting the Disposal of Unused Opioid

The purpose of this study is to compare the rates of proper opioid disposal in patients receiving an educational brochure compared to an automated text message delivered directly to patients' cell phones alongside the brochure, compared to no education on the subject.

Surgical Patient Knowledge and Safe Use of Opioids

Opioids are commonly prescribed for surgical patients to treat moderate to severe pain after surgery. However, opioids can be associated with serious complications such as respiratory depression and death. Currently, it is not routine practice to provide standardized written materials to surgical patients about the risks of opioids and how to safely use opioids after surgery. Investigator has developed an educational pamphlet specifically for surgical patients to educate them a...

Decreasing Unused Opioids in the Home Post Supracondylar Fracture Repair

Over the past two decades, the misuse of prescription opioids has significantly increased. A recent systematic review reported as much as 67% to 92% of opioids dispensed on discharge post-surgery go unused. This culture of overprescribing is consistently observed across surgical specialties. Less frequently observed is the potential for opioid use and misuse in children and adolescents post-surgery. The research to date in this area has been poorly performed with heterogenous d...

Safely Disposing of Surplus Prescription Opioids

This study evaluates two interventions intended to increase the safe disposal of leftover prescription opioids. Approximately half of participants will receive a drug disposal kit and the other half will receive an informational sheet describing how to safely dispose of leftover prescription opioids. Participants will be randomized by day for pragmatic reasons.

Opioid Analgesic Use and Disposal Following Outpatient Dental Surgery

Background: Overdose deaths from prescription opioid analgesics quadrupled from 4,000 cases to nearly 17,000 cases annually during 1999-2011. Most people who misuse or abuse prescription opioids obtain these pills from friends or family members who have surplus medication left over from prior prescriptions. There is little published data on surplus opioid analgesics remaining after patients recover from painful procedures. Even less is known about patients' willingness to dispo...



Acute stroke management represents a true medical emergency that requires prompt diagnosis and urgent treatment. In a previous exhaustive cohort study conducted in the Rhône region, France (AVC69) the investigators observed that only a small percentage of patients could access to thrombolysis in time. In this cohort of 1306 patients treated in one of the emergency department of the Rhone region for a suspected stroke, 84% of patients reached hospital through an emergency depar...

Excess Opioid Disposal Following Orthopedic Foot and Ankle Surgery

This study aims to survey the drug disposal methods of orthopedic foot and ankle patients with excess pain medication following and operation. The study is a randomized control trial comparing the use of FDA approved at home disposal methods to current clinical methods of recommending disposal at medication drop off locations.

The Excess Opioid Disposal Study

This study is designed to test the hypothesis that providing information to patients about excess opioid disposal, calling patients prior to their outpatient post-operative surgical appointment and providing a convenient drop box for opioid disposal will increase rates of FDA compliant disposal.

A Survey of Parent/Caregiver Practices on the Storage, Use, and Disposal of Opioids in a Comprehensive Cancer Center

Nationwide Awareness Campaign and Call for Dental Screening for HHT in Germany

HHT is a relative rare autosomal dominant inherited disorder of the fibrovascular tissue. Diagnosis of HHT is often delayed for decades (Pierucci 2012). However, it would be desirable to achieve an early diagnosis as early screening and treatment decrease disease-associated complications and increase life expectancy (Kroon 2018). Our approach is a nationwide call and awareness campaign to dentists in Germany, as nearly all persons visit a dentist from time to time. This approac...

Pain and Medication Use Following Surgery

Patients will be randomized to one of two interventions intended to facilitate safe disposal of opioids after cessation following surgery. For pragmatic reasons, participants will be randomized by day to either the information sheet or the disposal bag using a block randomization schedule. To ensuring adequate sample size, patients will be enrolled for a ~4-week period following the 2-week usual care run in period. In the event that the sample size estimate has not been reached...

Quantity of Opioids for Acute Pain and Limit Unused Medication

Opioids (morphine and morphine-like substances) are often prescribed to patients to manage pain after an emergency department visit. In the past 20 years, opioid prescriptions have risen sharply, accompanied by a significant rise in opioid misuse (e.g., recreational or non-medical use, potentially leading to addiction or overdose). One explanation for this crisis is the availability and easy access of leftover opioid pills in Canadian homes, allowing family members (including c...

Monitoring of Adequate Course of General Anesthesia

Clinical monitoring is the most common method of adjustment of the appropriate level of general anesthesia. However, the episodes of intraoperative awareness are still reported, suggesting that clinical observations may not be sufficient in some cases. The objective of the study was to compare the efficacy of clinical and instrumental neuromonitoring with auditory evoked potentials in intraoperative analysis of the proper level of general anesthesia. The patients schedul...

Ambulatory Gynecologic Surgery: Finding the Optimal Opioid Prescription

Currently there is a nationwide epidemic in opioid abuse and overdose deaths. While the opioid epidemic is multi-factorial one major source of excess opioids may be over-prescribing in the post-operative period. There is wide variation in the prescribing practices for post-operative pain control and there is no standard of care for pain control after minor laparoscopic surgery in general or after gynecologic laparoscopy. There is also evidence to show that on average half of th...
