Opioid Stewardship Committee

In addition to leading Aurora Health Care’s department of non-interventional pain managment, Dr. Michael McNett is also co-chairman of the hospital’s Opioid Stewardship Committee that grew out of a committee concerned with the over-prescribing of antibiotics.

According to McNett, the Opioid Stewardship Committee has the following objectives:

1 To identify doctors who may be operating on an “old system of belief” regarding opioid prescribing and re-educate them.

2 To create protocols of non-narcotic treatments.

3 To utilize pharmacies in drug take-back programs.

4 When prescribing opioids, to start with the mildest and least addictive.
