How Is Organized Medicine Helping to Combat the Opioid Epidemic?

Last October, the American Medical Association (AMA), the American Osteopathic Association (AOA) and the American Dental Association (ADA) along with many other medical, osteopathic, dental and health professional organizations were part of a public and private sector partnership announcement  aimed at combating the prescription drug abuse epidemic.

Collectively the groups committed to raising awareness of the opioid abuse problem among their members and to encouraging their members to take action. The AMA has asked us to assess how many NCMS members have educated themselves on the issue, have prescribed naloxone or used the state’s Controlled Substance Reporting System (CSRS) since last October. Please take just a minute and answer these four ‘yes’ or ‘no’ questions, to help the AMA assess progress on this initiative.

Answer the questions here.

Thank you for all you do!
