Abstract

Opioid abuse is serious problem in Vermont with an estimated yearly health cost of $38 million. In 2015, 28% of Windham county residents were prescribed opioids. In order to combat the ongoing crisis of opioid prescription abuse, the State of Vermont will implement new prescribing regulations which will take effect in July, 2017. To ensure compliance with these new regulations, health care providers need to be educated to allow for a seamless transition in patient care.
