“Data from patients prescribed opioids indicate a connection between prescribing practices and opioid-related harms and a need to optimize opioid prescribing,” Amy S.B. Bohnert, PhD, MHS, from University of Michigan and Veterans Affairs Center for Clinical Management Research, and colleagues wrote.
