Hennepin Health invites you to review the Pain Management and Opioids Guide for Consumers (https://www.stratishealth.org/pip/consumer-pain-opioid-guide.html). Created by Hennepin Health in collaboration with other Minnesota health plans, the guide helps consumers understand pain and understand opioids. Please share the guide with your patients; for ease, the guide can be printed from the website. The guide is geared for consumer use and is written in person-centered plain language.
Hennepin Health is part of a Managed Care Organization (MCO) collaborative that aims to reduce the rate of chronic opioid use in Minnesota. The Pain Management and Opioids Guide for Consumers provides information about pain, pain medication, and ways to manage pain with self-care. The guide also provides information on opioids – their side effects and risks – and how to store and dispose opioids properly.
