Safer Prescribing of Opioids after Trauma and Surgery

A collaborative learning series presented by the South Central Wisconsin Healthcare Emergency Readiness Coalition (SCWIHERC), South Central Regional Trauma Advisory Council (SCRTAC), and the Surgical Collaborative of Wisconsin (SCW), through a generous grant from the Wisconsin Department of Health Services.

Are you interested in more content around opioid prescribing? Check out SaferOpioids.com, a new website funded by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services. We hope that Safer Opioids can be a resource for data-driven strategies to minimize unnecessary opioid prescriptions, prevent diversion of opioids into communities, and provide effective non-opioid pain relief.
