Abstract

Considering the national opioid epidemic and its impact on thousands of lives, the importance of appropriate management of controlled substances in the home hospice setting is paramount. Family members tend to be the primary caregivers for home hospice patients, and hospice nurses are the front line for providing education on opioid disposal. As such, the importance of effective and consistent education is essential in minimizing the risks of misuse and diversion.
