For Clinicians

Successful treatmentWe believe that patients are at the heart of health care. Treating patients with respect, hearing and valuing their concerns, and involving them in decisions about their care is the foundation of the National Quality Strategy (NQS) and the “triple aim” of improving care, health, and cost of care.
While patient-centered care is about the actions of the physician and other health care providers, patient engagement is about the action of patients regarding their own care.
The patient must be at the center of clinical care. CME Outfitters actively inserts the patient voice into our education by accessing a large social community of patients and health activists to cater to the specific needs of the patient. That is why we have created this page of patient resources, so that you, the clinician, can share these resources, or this webpage with your patients to help them be active in their care.
In alignment with the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI), this resource page is here to provide patients information they can use to make decisions that reflect their desired health outcomes.

The Opioid Risk Tool is a brief screening tool to help predict which individuals may develop aberrant behaviors when prescribed opioids for chronic pain. The tool is self-administered and measures risk factors associated with substance abuse including, personal and family history of substance abuse, age, history of preadolescent sexual abuse, and certain psychological diseases. Patients receive scores of 0-3 (low risk), 4-7 (moderate risk), or ≥8 (high risk), indicating the probability of their exhibiting opioid-related aberrant behaviors.
