WellScreen™ is the only technology on the market that integrates BOOK, a tool specifically designed to detect a lack of knowledge among individuals who are using opioids.
Opioid abuse is a significant public health challenge facing every state in the country. The opioid crisis claims approximately 115 American lives daily and costs the U.S economy nearly $80 billion per year.
We can't possibly treat our way out of the opioid crisis. We need prevention and early detection to stem the tide. Without these, we will never be free of the opioid crisis.
Researchers from Johns Hopkins University, with funding from the National Institute on Drug Abuse, developed BOOK, a tool specifically designed to detect a lack of knowledge and/or high-risk behaviors among individuals who are using opioids.
BOOK is a useful tool for many professionals.

The BOOK structured screening questionnaire includes twelve true/false questions to assess opioid knowledge, opioid overdose knowledge, and opioid overdose response knowledge. Based on the results of the questionnaire, practitioners may recommend an educational module to increase knowledge of opioids, opioid overdose risks, and appropriate opioid overdose response.
Wellscreen offers an evidence-based education module to increase patient knowledge of opioids and opioid overdose risks.
