ABOUT PROJECT

VUMC established the VUMC Opioid Stewardship and Safety (VOSS) committee, an enterprise-wide, multidisciplinary team comprised of 20+ representatives from both the clinical and business sides of the organization, including medical staff, nursing, administration, pharmacy, supply chain, legal, quality, and safety. The goal of VOSS is to reduce unnecessary opioid prescribing while increasing the use of non-opioid alternatives for pain management through education, and to implement enterprise-wide standardized practices for the prescribing of opioids for both chronic pain and surgical procedures.
