Sunshine Health Opioid Provider Toolkit

Date: 05/23/17

Opioid addiction is an epidemic that is hitting Florida especially hard. Community-based physicians play a pivotal role in stemming the record number of overdose deaths and getting treatment for our members, our families and our friends.

Sunshine Health, in partnership with physicians, nurses and therapists, developed an Opioid Toolkit to share best practice intervention strategies and treatments for patients struggling with addiction. This Opioid Toolkit is designed primarily for treating providers but we encourage you to share it with your practice staff and administrators as effective opioid addiction treatment impacts everyone in your office.

This free resource includes summary guidelines, prescribing agreements, assessment tools, tapering tools and more. The Toolkit is located under Provider Manuals, Forms and Resources. We hope you find it useful and welcome your suggestions at sunshinecontracting@centene.com for additional tools or topics. Together, we can help our members – your patients – get and stay well.
