Experimental: Intervention Group
My Healthy Choices explains what opioid pain medications are, assesses and explains the patient's risk factors related to taking opioids, assesses patient preferences about pain medications, and produces a tailored patient report based on the answers. The patient is encouraged to show the report to the treating ED clinician so they can discuss medication options for treating the patient's pain. Following discharge from the ED, intervention group participants discharged with a prescription pain reliever receive messages about safe medication use, storage, and disposal and access to an educational web portal that contains more information on prescription pain medications and safety.
