Guideline resources improve patient-provider communications

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Center for Injury Prevention and Control contracted with Brunet-García to help address the opioid overdose epidemic plaguing the nation. We developed strategic marketing, education, and training materials to help physicians, pharmacists, patients, and the general public understand the problem and work toward possible solutions.

We helped enhance dissemination and implementation of CDC’s Guideline for Prescribing Opioids for Chronic Pain. To facilitate adoption of the 2016 Guideline, we created a variety of materials and user-friendly tools for healthcare providers, which included videos and a mobile app with a morphine milligram equivalents calculator, quick tips, motivational interviewing techniques, and a list of resources and glossary items.

Over the past few years, Brunet-García has also supported the CDC with web training and clinical tool development, data visualization, patient education materials, comprehensive communication plans, and social media strategies to help distribute compelling messages and materials. We continue to help with the development of resources for the Guideline and related issues.
