11 hospital teams participate in the American College of Surgeon’s NSQIP program and collect and enter opioid-related data into NSQIP registry on clinical measures that were established by the collaborative. Teams then use results to drive improvement in their organizations and discuss their findings at PANC meetings.
Data is collected on cases performed on or after September 1, 2018. Eight relevant custom fields were developed and have been added to the ACS NSQIP platform. Variables included capture data on pre-operative use of opioids and benzodiazepines; types and levels of anesthesia and intraoperative opioids; pain management approaches; and post-operative opioid prescribing and use.
