Opioid-Induced Constipation

Are You Sitting Comfortably? Dealing with Opioid-Induced Constipation

This complimentary patient education tool was developed to equip nurse practitioners (NPs) with effective patient-centered education and tools for the management of opioid-induced constipation (OIC). This flipchart serves as an engaging visual patient teaching aid to help patients at risk for or with OIC in maximizing their autonomy in treatment decisions, avoiding or minimizing complications and enhancing their quality of life. This was developed and produced through the support of a grant from Purdue Pharma L.P. and Shionogi Inc. To order your complimentary flipchart with accompanying take-home patient handouts, visit
