The Collaborative for Effective Prescription Opioid Policies (CEPOP) announced CEPOP Salutes – a series of awards to recognize and highlight the good work of individuals and organizations across the array of stakeholders in the comprehensive response to opioid abuse, misuse, and diversion.

There was a WebEx webinar on August 15, 2016 highlighting the first nominees from the CEPOP Salutes initiative. CEPOP recognized Hospital Engagement Networks (HENs) for their efforts to combat prescription opioid misuse, abuse and diversion beginning with pain management in the inpatient setting.
