Hello:

As you are aware, in collaboration with many others across Intermountain, Pain Management Services is working to reduce opioid-related misuse, addiction and death. To help educate our patients and the community about the risks and precautions of opioid therapy for chronic pain, the Pain Management Clinical Services in partnership with Community Benefit recently published a video titled “Opioids for Chronic Pain Management.” 

This video is now available here.



Will you help us spread the word by sharing this new video with the members of your team? The attached email can be used as a communication template regarding the video to facilitate sharing.  Also attached are important opioid reduction tools that can be found in the listing of Care Process Models on intermountain.net or via the physician portal.
