Among the federal and state initiatives designed to combat the abuse and diversion of prescription pain medications, Prescription Drug Monitoring Programs (PDMPs) are a promising policy mechanisms to address the epidemic. Findings will be presented from a mixed methods study, designed to establish baseline knowledge about PDMPs’ functions, the interorganizational relationships that help or hinder their functioning within the public health and legal systems, and the legally established infrastructure variation that impacts their implementation.
