The Opioid Checklist

“The Opioid Checklist” is provided for use by pharmacists in educating patients about the safe use of opioid medications. It briefly outlines key aspects of the opioid epidemic, provides medication counseling guidelines, describes safe medication storage and disposal options, and provides space to include the pharmacist/pharmacy’s information. Use this checklist when counseling your patients, and send it home with them for future reference.
