This case study focused on a New Jersey based surgery center that partnered with a nonprofit agency to launch a multimodal analgesia perioperative program designed to reduce the number of narcotics prescribed to patients following outpatient surgery.
This a huge step in the right direction that we hope will serve as a model for other medical facilities to replicate.Andi Williams,
Executive Director, Community Outreach and Development for CIC, New Jersey
The program was designed to educate key stakeholders in four groups:
- Anesthesia team (anesthesiologists and nurse anesthetists)
- Full time staff/nurses
- Patients and caregivers
The program also partnered with New Jersey’s Community in Crisis to dispense DisposeRx packets to patients and collect data. Their study found that many individuals were in fact appropriately destroying the medications following the method recommended and enabled by the DisposeRx packets.
