March 17, 2017

Abstract

Policymakers looking to reduce the abuse of prescription opioids face difficult decisions in selecting which of the many interventions will best fit their jurisdictions. This brief outlines a five-step process decision-makers should apply to incorporate data and evaluation into the formation and implementation of policy: create a logic model, identify data sources, collect data, analyze data to identify and solve implementation challenges, and continue to incorporate data analysis as an ongoing part of the policy process.
