Newswise: Opioid Self-management Practices and Potential Safety Risks Among Patients with Cancer

University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing

In effect, patients with cancer represent one of the few groups excluded from most state legislation and policy initiatives on prescribing opioids as well as from opioid stewardship programs of many health systems. However, little is understood about oncology patients’ opioid self-management practices and potential safety risk that may stem from these practices.
