The primary evidence-based strategy to effectively address this crisis in our healthcare communities is a having a robust opioid stewardship program (OSP). To support provider OSP implementation efforts, HSAG has developed this resource site to provide guidance and information from safe and appropriate prescribing of opioids to navigating the complex issues associated with opioid use disorder (OUD). The following resources are categorized by the elements of opioid stewardship they support and include gap assessments, links to guidelines, webinars, and vetted evidence-based literature and toolkits.
