AAOA Poll Highlights Need for Robust Consumer Education Effort to Address Opioid Abuse Epidemic

The findings underscore a significant gap in education and awareness regarding safe and appropriate use of prescription pain medicines and the urgent need for outreach to patients, caregivers and families around proactive steps to take to mitigate the likelihood of misuse before it occurs.
