First, Do No Harm

The National Academy of Medicine has issued a new special publication to address the ongoing opioid epidemic.  The 21-page paper calls for all healthcare providers to prioritize non-opioid strategies when managing chronic pain, follow five axioms of responsible opioid prescribing, and promote policies that stimulate and support available scientific evidence.  As a call to action, the report reminds all providers to "First, do no harm".   

Hep Free Hawaii recognizes that by addressing the opioid epidemic, we are also addressing the closely related issues such as overdose and viral hepatitis.  Mahalo, National Academy of Medicine!
