The Opioid Prescribing Work Group, under the DHS Opioid Prescribing Improvement Program, announced their complete set of opioid prescribing recommendations on Friday, December 1. The draft prescribing recommendations are available on the Opioid Prescribing Work Group web site here or at https://mn.gov/dhs/opwg.
The DHS is currently collecting comments and responses to questions about the guidance during the public comment period, which spans from now, to December 30, 2017. After the public comment period, the Opioid Prescribing Work Group will review the comments submitted and determine whether to make changes to the recommendations. Revisions are subject to approval from the commissioners of Human Services and Health.
DHS may post public comments on its website, but will not post comments it finds to be inappropriate or comments that contain confidential information. Comments that contain confidential information may be posted, however, if the confidential information is redacted.
The DHS is accepting public comments on the prescribing guidelines until 4pm on December 30, 2017.
