Provider-Targeted Behavioral Interventions to Prevent Unsafe Opioid Prescribing for Acute Non-Cancer Pain in Primary Care

PI(s): Kevin Kraemer, University of Pittsburgh

Project Summary: This project addresses the research question “What is the comparative effectiveness of different health system strategies that aim to prevent unsafe opioid prescribing while ensuring access to non-opioid methods for pain management with the goal of reducing pain and improving patient function and quality-of-life outcomes, while reducing patient harm?” The project team will assess whether behavioral science-based interventions can “nudge” providers toward more evidence-based care for patients with acute non-cancer pain.
