In 2018, 105 lives were lost to the opioid epidemic on Staten Island. Staten Island Performing Provider System is calling doctors, nurse practitioners, pain management specialists, pharmacists and other prescribers on Staten Island to Take the Safe Prescriber Pledge! As a valued healthcare professional of our community, we are asking you to join a public health effort to reverse the epidemic of addiction and opioid use disorder by taking the pledge to become a safe prescribing champion for other healthcare practitioners across Staten Island.
You are invited to attend our upcoming launch event of the island-wide Safe Prescriber Pledge campaign. The event will be held at the Williamson Theatre, College of Staten Island on Wednesday, April 10th, 2019 from 6:30pm-8:00pm with a dinner reception to follow. You can register for the event here.
Attendees will learn about the importance of becoming a safe prescriber, review the evidence-based recommendations and elements of the Safe Prescriber Pledge. You can be the first to sign the Pledge to join Staten Island community efforts to reduce mortality, drug use and promote an improved quality of life for all Staten Islanders.
We hope you’ll join us in this important campaign to save lives at the kick-off of the Safe Prescriber Pledge program.
