- •New persistent opioid use (NPOU) is a common post-operative complication for patients undergoing bariatric surgery.
- •Despite the link between post-operative opioid prescriptions and NPOU, opioids remain the cornerstone of pain management.
- •Interventions that address this variation are often focused on awareness of guidelines, however, the reasons are complex.
- •Factors that influence opioid prescription practices exist at the patient, provider, institution, and collaborative levels.
- •Understanding determinants that impact stakeholder alignment is critical to improving adherence to guideline-concordant care.
