The primary goal of this program is to change clinician behavior as manifested by the incorporation by primary care clinicians of evidence-based opioid prescribing practices in chronic non-cancer pain. The primary objective is to increase patient-clinician education and discussion surrounding issues relevant to long-term opioid therapy. Secondary objectives include: (1) increase assessment of the risk associated with long-term opioid therapy; (2) improve monitoring for prescription medication misuse or abuse.
