FCEP encourages participation in the 'Assessing the Utilization of E-FORCSE' survey
The Florida College of Emergency Physicians is disseminating a survey, on behalf of its principal investigator Dr. Henry William Young II of the UF School of Public Health and Health Professions, which aims to better understand emergency medicine providers’ prescribing habits of opioids.
Identifying which individuals will abuse these opioids is often difficult in the emergency department. Prescription drug abuse is a rapidly growing epidemic in the United States. Several interventions have been implemented to combat this epidemic, and we want to know what you think of them.
E-FORCSE, Electronic-Florida Online Reporting of Controlled Substances Evaluation program, allows emergency providers the ability to identify patients who may be at risk for abusing opioids before they are prescribed. Overall, E-FORCSE utilization among providers is low, and the goal of the survey is to identify reasons for the low utilization of E-FORCSE and to discover ways that it could be improved.
The survey can be completed in less than 10 minutes. To participate, please click the hyperlink below. All information obtained will remain anonymous. We really appreciate your help. Your involvement is entirely voluntary.
