Safe storage and disposal resources for physicians and patients
1. Educate your patients about safe use of prescription opioids.
2. Remind your patients that medications should be stored out of reach of children – and in a safe place.
3. Talk to your patients about the most appropriate way to dispose of expired, unwanted and unused medications.
The AMA wants to hear directly from physicians how they are responding to the nation’s opioid epidemic. By sharing your story, you will help inform AMA advocacy in our work on behalf of physicians and patients.
