The State of the Science in Opioid Policy Research


Characterize the state of the science in opioid policy research based on a literature review of opioid policy studies.


We conducted a scoping review of studies evaluating the impact of U.S. state-level and federal-level policies on opioid-related outcomes published in 2005−2018. We characterized: 1) state and federal policies evaluated, 2) opioid-related outcomes examined, and 3) study design and analytic methods (summarized overall and by policy category).
