AHA Toolkit Offers Guidance for Hospitals on How to Address the Opioid Epidemic

The American Hospital Association (AHA) has developed a new toolkit to provide hospitals and health systems with guidance and information on how they can work with their patients, clinicians and communities to stem the opioid epidemic.

The toolkit focuses on reviewing the multifaceted role of hospitals and health systems in fighting the epidemic (and the key activities that every hospital should be undertaking), and offering sources of expertise, ideas and resources to assist hospitals in fulfilling their roles.

The toolkit was created with input from industry experts, including psychiatrists specializing in addiction, chief medical officers, pain management professionals, and other clinicians as well as specifically-identified stakeholders to ensure its relevance across the field of medicine.
