The Virginia Orthopaedic Society (VOS), with a grant from the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS), has created opioid disposal handouts in pad form for VOS members to dispense with opioid prescriptions. The pads were created to inform patients about the correct disposal of unused opioid medications. If you are a current VOS member and would like to distribute these handouts, please email Andrew Mann, VOS Association Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org
Virginia Orthopaedic Society’s work related to opioid diversion was highlighted in the February issue of the AAOS NOW newsletter. The opioid disposal card created by Dr. T.K. Miller and VOS made the front page of the newsletter. See it here.
