Using Data to Improve Opioid Prescribing
Available resources to address the Opioid/Substance Use Crisis have been enhanced by the state in the past few years.  Pertinent to prescribers, data analytics are being increasingly incorporated into the Prescription Monitoring Program platform.  Launched in 2021, the Maine Drug Data Hub provides a centralized repository for substance use-related data and resources.  These will be explored in depth and the presentation will conclude with information related to harm reduction.  Patient experience will be shared through video.

Learning objectives:
- Use the PMP as a tool to improve prescribing.
- Review data and resources at Maine Drug Data Hub.
- Support and participate in harm reduction.
