Opiate Use Disorder Screening

Synthesis of Evidence – Intervention PICOT Question: In pain management providers (P), does implementation of an OUD screening tool (I), compared to no screening tool (C), affect OUD screening and referral compliance rates (O) over ten weeks (T)?Gap In Practice:  Current practice at this pain management clinic is provider discretion for screening and referral for treatment for an OUD. A gap in practice identified is that the providers of the pain management clinic have failed to be educated on OUD, and to implement guidelines for screening OUD adequately. Therefore, chronic pain management patients are on prolonged opiate therapy, are not consistently screened for an OUD. Many of the patients have become dependent on their opioid treatment and lack the necessary referrals for OUD treatment. For this assignment, write a synthesis of the evidence contained in 10 references related to your selected intervention. The references can be things like primary research studies, systematic reviews, or evidence-based practice guidelines, such as recommendations from AHRQ or CDC. The evidence can be no more than five years old, except for seminal works such as models, theories, et cetera. Note that synthesis is not an article-by-article summary, but rather an integration of the content of the articles you select. Address similarities and differences of opinion inherent in the sources. Your 10 references must support the intervention. The evidence must show your intervention is effective at addressing your gap in practice. Consider the following when reviewing the literature: date of publication, the primary purpose of the study, methodology and design used, type of data analyses, significant findings, and how the findings relate to your intervention. Does the evidence answer your PICO(T) question? Does the evidence clearly support your intervention(s)? Remember, when you analyze and synthesize information or evidence, you are making conclusions about it. Consider the following when analyzing and synthesizing the evidence: Is it recent? This is especially important if the evidence is data-driven. How logical is it? What is the experience of the authors or practitioners who created it? What evidence challenges it? How important is it? How relevant is it to my study focus? What is its significance? In what ways is this piece of evidence consistent with other evidence I have collected, and in what ways is it different? Assignment Requirements Find and cite a minimum of 10 pieces of evidence. Provide in-text citations and full references for the pieces of evidence. Your paper should be 4–5 pages in length, not including a title page and reference page. Write clearly, accurately, and professionally, incorporating sources appropriately, using current APA formatting.
