DQ 14/1

As an AGACNP, what health system measures would you put into place to assure addictive behaviors are identified and the risk of opioid dependency is mitigated? As you think of health system measures that could be implored to mitigate opiate dependency, discuss current legislations and policies, how policies and programs affect patient care, and opioid dependency when the patient requires more than the recommended dosage of an opioid. Support your summary and recommendations plan with a minimum of two APRN approved scholarly resources.
