Several studies indicate that patients taking opioid medication for chronic pain are not only willing to taper off the medication but want to taper off the medication. So, what is the barrier to their success? Sometimes it is the fear of increased pain, lack of encouragement, and lack of resources on how to taper.  Tuality Health Alliance wants to help by providing some resources in the management of tapering your patients. We have put together several tools and resources to help you and your patient succeed.  This will be imperative with the new changes coming on January 1st, 2018.
