Pickard and Lee received funding to test the impact of intervention on opioid prescribing

Dr. Simon Pickard and Dr. Todd Lee have received funding from the Illinois Department Human Services as part of their work with the Illinois Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP) through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Prevention for States program. The funding will be used to pilot test an academic detailing program focused on the CDC guidelines for managing patients with chronic, non-cancer pain. The pilot study will include primary care providers in the Chicago region and examine the impact of the intervention on opioid prescribing and PMP use.
