NHA Opioid Toolkit

In early 2018, the Nebraska Hospital Association Board of Directors authorized the formation of a NHA Steering Council on the Opioid Epidemic to develop a toolkit to assist NHA members in the following areas:

  • Crafting recommendations regarding appropriate prescribing to reduce the risk of substance use/misuse disorders.
  • Developing recommendations regarding screening and appropriate treatment for those who are addicted.
  • Addressing appropriate expectations on the part of the public regarding opioid use.

 The development of this toolkit has been a collaborative effort on the part of many.
