Alaska will assess levels of awareness of its prescription drug monitoring program (PDMP) among health care practitioners; identify statewide trends in controlled substance prescribing; increase provider self-awareness of prescribing habits; expand the data collected by increasing use of the PDMP; and recommend policy changes to prevent opioid overuse, misuse, abuse, and overdose. The current PDMP program will be enhanced by adding a prescriber report card function to track prescribing habits.
