Increase patient safety
Focus on quality care
The United States continues to feel the staggering impact of the opioid crisis—as many as two million Americans have a prescription-related substance use disorder (SUD). By some estimates, 45 people die every day due to a prescription opioid-related overdose, four times as many as 20 years ago. Without the right education and training, your organization may have trouble appropriately responding to the opioid crisis.Learn More
Promote better opioid prescribing practices
Increase patient safety
Enhance care success
Providers can best protect themselves by educating patients on alternatives to opioids that will not be as addictive, will not have some of the negative side effects, but will control their pain.

HealthStream’s Opioid Training Curriculum is comprised of two courses promoting opioid addiction understanding. A general overview course is supplemented by a specialized second course designed for clinicians that includes CE credit.
The Opioid-Stewardship Program is an educational series built in partnership with the National Quality Forum (NQF) and based on their NQP Opioid Stewardship Playbook. This series goes beyond facts and figures about the opioid crisis to provide concrete strategies and implementation examples for healthcare organizations and clinicians.
Opioids: Tackling the Crisis Through Person-Centered Care bundle is designed to train clinicians and all staff on identifying opioid use disorder. These courses are designed to address the growing opioid crisis by providing all clinicians and staff with the tools they need to understand how good intentions to manage pain can evolve into devastatingly negative patient outcomes. Customers can annotate these courses as well to include state- or facility-specific information.
