On December 15th new rules for prescribing narcotics for chronic pain patients go into effect for Indiana providers. To assist with implementation of these new rules, the Indiana Prescription Drug Abuse Task Force: Education Subcommittee has created a toolkit with screening tools, templates and other resources to assist with putting these new rules into practice. The toolkit was developed by a diverse group of providers from a variety of practice settings. We believe the rules, if implemented effectively, will significantly reduce the adverse outcomes associated with narcotic use we are currently seeing in our state. http://www.in.gov/bitterpill/toolkit.html
