Adopting best practices in post-operative analgesia prescribing in a safety-net hospital: Residents as a conduit to change

Safety-net hospitals can and should benefit from robust quality improvement programs. We hypothesized that a surgical trainee-driven quality improvement program, tailored to the unique resources of a safety-net hospital, can change prescribing patterns to increase the percentage of patients discharged with non-opioid analgesic medication (acetaminophen and ibuprofen) in an especially vulnerable population at our urban trauma center, taking one step closer to truly achieving equitable surgical care. We found that surgical trainees were able to change prescribing habits for general surgery patients.
