Episode 404: Does your patient have an opioid use disorder?

In episode 404, Mike and James, with the very capable Tina Korownyk, go over the approach to what tools to use to help determine if a patient has an opioid use disorder (OUD). We talk about a simple tool called the Prescription Opioid Misuse Index (POMI), a 6-point questionnaire with strong predictive ability for OUD which seems to be a reasonable case-finding tool.
