Opioid guidelines and calculators

The Oregon Workers' Compensation Division's Opioid Workgroup, with input from the Medical Advisory Committee, developed the following opioid guidelines for both short-term and long-term opioid therapy.

The guidelines also offer opioid resources to better assist prescribers when considering opioid therapy. We encourage providers to share these guidelines with their patients as a tool to better understand and discuss the appropriate and safe use of opioids, as well as the possible risks associated with opioid therapy.

The division and the Medical Advisory Committee will continue to monitor the latest information about opioid therapy and will revise these guidelines as needed.
