The Michigan Opioid Prescribing Engagement Network, or Michigan OPEN, uses a novel approach to prevent chronic opioid use before it starts.
Opioid Solutions , a collaboration between IHPI, the Injury Prevention Center, and the U-M Office of Research, serves as a central hub for U-M research, educational activities and community outreach related to opioids. On the site, users can browse education and research projects, researchers, centers and publications to see the infrastructure and scope of work that allows U-M to facilitate collaborations with local, state and national partners around opioid overdose prevention.
Health professionals must partner more effectively with law enforcement, public officials, the business community, the faith community, and others to make headway in the national opioid crisis and other pressing health issues: this was the key message that U.S. Surgeon General Jerome M. Adams, M.D., M.P.H., brought to Michigan in March 2018 during a daylong visit to the U-M campus organized by IHPI.
