Good Afternoon,

As many of you are aware, the complete set of opioid prescribing recommendations developed under the DHS Opioid Prescribing Improvement Program was announced 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. I have also attached the guidance for your review and distribution.

DHS is accepting public comments on the prescribing guidelines until 4 pm on December 30, 2017. Please distribute the guidance to members of your communities or networks who are interested in this topic.

DHS will collect comments and respond to questions about the guidance during the public comment period. 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.

Comments may be submitted to this email address: dhs.opioid@state.mn.gov or by mail to the address below.
