MOCEP Companion to the MHA Opioid Prescribing Guidelines
The Missouri Hospital Association (MHA) released guidelines about prescribing opioids in the Emergency Department on December 1. MOCEP was one of 6 organizations involved in developing these guidelines. As the guidelines were a collaborative effort, we did have to make some compromises. As such, we are now releasing a companion piece to the MHA guidelines to expand and clarify a few key points that were not included in the original guidelines.
