Safe Medication Disposal Education and Research Project

This project will design, conduct, and evaluate a 4-month pilot study in Manchester, New Hampshire, and Providence, Rhode Island which will assess the effectiveness of a community-based campaign to work with and educate key stakeholders about the need to dispose of unused opioid prescription drugs. Determine if the proposed model is effective and can be used in other communities to reduce the significant amount of unused opioid prescriptions that remain in medicine cabinets. NLM resources will be distributed and education about opioid related NLM information will be given.
