Stem the Tide: Addressing the Opioid Epidemic

11/10/2017

 

 

A new toolkit from the American Hospital Association provides guidance, information and case examples to help hospitals and health systems work with their patients, clinicians and communities to tackle the opioid epidemic.
 
President Donald Trump last week declared the opioid epidemic a national public health emergency under federal law, directing executive agencies to use every appropriate emergency authority to fight the opioid crisis. In addition, the House Energy and Commerce Committee Wednesday held a hearing on the administration's progress in carrying out provisions of the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act and the 21st Century Cures Act, enacted last year to address the opioid epidemic.
