Modification of prescription overdose risk behaviors is gaining importance considering the worsening opioid overdose epidemic. In response, the Center facilitated rapid translation of new evidence to use within practice, developing a tailored, motivational interviewing-based, 30 minute Behavioral Opioid Safety (BOS) intervention for delivery among emergency department (ED) patients. The Center’s behavioral intervention reduced prescription opioid overdose risk behaviors.
