Opioid Stewardship

Enhancing Opioid Stewardship in Rural Wisconsin Health Systems: A Toolkit for Pharmacists

In response to the opioid crisis, Wisconsin health systems serving rural communities are developing opioid stewardship programs to facilitate appropriate opioid prescribing, opioid disposal, diversion prevention, management of the effects of the use of opioids, treatment of opioid use disorder and reducing opioid overdoses.

Health system pharmacists often lead these efforts and have many vital roles to play in opioid stewardship. This toolkit presents examples of opioid stewardship initiatives that Wisconsin pharmacists have implemented along with supporting evidence, curated information about resources and tools. 

The toolkit was co-developed by the University of Wisconsin School of Pharmacy Sonderegger Research Center and pharmacist colleagues from Fort HealthCare in collaboration with pharmacists from several health systems across the state, PearlRx and the Pharmacy Society of Wisconsin.
