Today’s issue of WorkCompRecap features the IAIABC’s recent release of their guide for policymakers and administrators who are interested in implementing policy solutions to reduce inappropriate use of opioids in the workers’ compensation system.
The new policy guide covers suggested options related to treatment guidelines, monitoring patients, physician documentation, continuing education requirements, prescription drug monitoring programs, and other topics. The IAIABC also stressed the complex nature of the issue, and pointed out that each jurisdiction will have different legal constraints and political realities that must be considered.
