MPOP – Michigan Pain-control Optimization Pathway

Providing Patients with the Best Possible Care

 

What is MUSIC MPOP?

The Michigan Pain-control Optimization Pathway (MPOP) is a quality improvement program that aims to safely limit, if appropriate, the number of opioid tablets a patient receives after a surgical procedure. For urologic care, this currently includes radical prostatectomy (prostate surgery), ureteroscopy (URS, kidney stone surgery), and vasectomy procedures. Physicians and clinic staff provide education on expectations and alternative pain management strategies to patients appropriate for this pathway following their procedure. Our goal is to provide patient’s with the best possible care, to help patients recover faster and return to their normal self without exposing them or their family to the risk that opioids pose.
