Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) Point of Care Tool

The opioid epidemic continues to surge across the U.S., so AANP developed this point of care tool as a reference guide for NPs to easily access as needed. The guide provides information regarding the disease state, symptoms and treatments of this chronic, relapsing disease of the brain.

Breaking the Cycle of Opioid Use Disorder

This handout is designed to support NPs working with patients who will or currently are receiving treatment for OUD. During shared clinical decision-making, the tool can guide the patient education on how the medications are used to treat OUD work and their common side effects. This handout provides a way for patients to take an active role in their recovery by utilizing journaling of their treatment goals, triggers and positive coping skills.
