MedChi Opioid Committee

    The focus of 2020:

    1. Gathering tools to help physicians:

    • recognize risk factors
    • screen for addiction
    • understand prescribing guidelines and best practices   

    2. Investigating alternative, scientifically-based non-opioid treatments

    3. Growing a coalition with entities seeking resolution to the epidemic.  
    Thus far, the task force has established partnerships with Governor Hogan's Opioid Operational Command Center, Maryland Department of Health, Board of Physicians, DrFirst (iPrescribe), Maryland Patient Safety Center, University of Maryland School of Pharmacy, DEA, and American Medical Association.

    This webpage is a living repository based on the above activities.  We upload information as we receive it. Our objective is to support you by providing relevant, up-to-date material.
