In 2021, overdose deaths in the United States reached a record high. At the same time, restrictions on prescription opioids strand many patients without adequate care. For policymakers and providers, ensuring quality patient care and reducing harm requires navigating an evolving landscape of restrictions and best practices. The New York State Department of Health Commissioner’s Grand Round will convene subject-matter experts to discuss New York State’s response to the opioid crisis and harm reduction strategies; the importance of using a health equity lens in the treatment of opioid use disorder (OUD); and guidance for treating chronic pain with opioids.
