The Providers Clinical Support System (PCSS) offers a course on identifying and treating substance use disorder (SUD), to help clinical practice staff at all levels better understand SUD and patients who may be dealing with it.
The Indiana Family and Social Services Administration (FSSA) addiction treatment website includes links to treatment options and contacts. Another link leads to resources for providers. A third FSSA web resource, “Know the O Facts,” aims to eliminate the stigma surrounding opioid use disorder based on three key facts: it is a disease; there is treatment; and recovery is possible.
Developed by ISMA, the Indiana Hospital Association and the Indiana State Department of Health, The Indiana Guidelines for the Management of Acute Pain
provide an outline for the safe, appropriate and effective prescribing of self-administered medications for pain.
These guidelines are an additional resource to supplement previous work in other settings:
The Indiana State Department of Health
(ISDH) offers many online
educational resources, safety information and links to addiction services.
The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration
released the 2017 edition of Drugs of Abuse
to show and describe the most commonly abused and misused drugs. The guide also includes information on the science of drug use, the effects of each drug’s effect on the body and mind, overdose potential, origin, legal status and other factors.
The National Center for Health Statistics
provides provisional drug overdose death counts at the national and state level
to help improve data quality and visualization of current trends. The data includes: a provisional count of deaths due to drug overdose, a provisional count of drug overdose deaths involving specific drugs or drug classes, a map of the percentage of total deaths due to drug overdoses and a map of the percentage change in provisional drug overdose deaths for the current 12-month period compared with the previous year.
