​Opioid Management

 

The Pillars of Effective Opioid Management

While opioids can be very effective in managing pain, it’s important to be aware of the serious risks involved when prescribed excessively and too early following an injury.

Research conducted by Liberty Mutual shows that patients receiving opioids shortly after an injury, when compared to patients who received no early opioids, were:

  • Disabled an average of 69 days longer
  • Three times more likely to need surgery
  • Six times more likely to become dependent on opioids 

We developed a three-pillar approach to managing opioid prescriptions and use for our claimants. This protocol helps us deliver better outcomes for our customers and returns injured employees to work more quickly.
