MedChi Opioid Committee

    The focus of 2021:

    1. Gathering tools to help physicians:

    • understand prescribing guidelines and best practices during the COVID-19 pandemic
    • recognize risk factors
    • screen for addiction 

    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.
