The PRISM (Pragmatic and Implementation Studies for the Management of Pain to Reduce Opioid Prescribing) program is a component of the NIH HEAL Initiative to address the opioid crisis. Highlights of Day 1 included welcoming the 4 new PRISM UG3 Demonstration Projects—AcuOA, FM TIPS, NOHARM, and OPTIMUM—and introducing the study teams to the NIH Collaboratory Program and Coordinating Center, hearing an overview of the HEAL Initiative goals and cooperative agreement, and learning about the aims of the new studies. Day 2 included face-to-face meetings between each PRISM Demonstration Project and the Collaboratory Core working groups to discuss anticipated challenges in design, implementation, analysis, and dissemination.
