We recently conducted an online survey to better understand what clinicians and the public think about how to solve the opioid epidemic. The survey was prompted by the recent letter sent by the Surgeon General to physicians in the US urging them to take a part in combating the opioid epidemic. On the Surgeon General website, healthcare providers are encouraged to help solve the opioid epidemic – “Our nation faces an opioid crisis. Health care providers are uniquely positioned to help communities and their patients #TurnTheTide on the opioid epidemic.
More than 85% of the survey respondents were either a doctor or other clinician.
Here are two preliminary results about they thought about what is the major cause of the opioid epidemic and who should take the lead in solving it (please note: these are preliminary results of the survey, so final results may differ from these preliminary findings):
