The Screening in Trauma for Opioid Misuse Prevention (STOMP) study seeks to develop protocols to detect opioid risk early in the course of pain management and, ultimately, to intervene to prevent opioid misuse, addiction, and related complications. The 3-year study brings together expertise in Addiction Medicine, Trauma Surgery, Public Health, Systems Engineering, Social Work, Pain Medicine, and Primary Care in an effort to improve our understanding of opioid misuse and the development of addiction in the context of traumatic injury and pain management.
- Opioid addiction and overdose are epidemic and increasing
- Victims of traumatic injury are at greater than normal risk for opioid addiction
- Initiates of opioid misuse who progress to injection frequently cite prescription of an opioid for an injury as their first exposure to opioid, and the event that led to their eventual addiction
- During year 1, the project will bring together clinical staff of Wisconsin’s Trauma Centers to discuss opioid analgesics in post-trauma pain management. The group will explore potential protocols to implement on trauma services to detect and address opioid misuse.
- During year 2-3, the project will recruit inpatients on the Trauma Service at University Hospital. Questionnaires assessing hypothesized risk factors for opioid misuse and addiction will be administered and patients followed over 6 months.
- The questionnaire items most predictive of opioid misuse during observation will be implemented as a risk screen at Wisconsin’s largest trauma centers.
- Study counselors will work with the team throughout the project in an effort to develop effective interventions to prevent opioid misuse and addiction.
