Abstract

Purpose

Increased opioid analgesic prescribing (OAP) has been associated with increased risk of prescription opioid diversion, misuse, and abuse. We studied regional and rural‐urban variations in OAP trends in Kentucky, from 2012 to 2015, and examined potential county‐level risk and protective factors.
