Our work

We work in collaboration with organizations and agencies at local, state and national levels to improve the health and safety of patients through education and promotion of evidence-based clinical best practices.

Our background

In 2017, the Tennessee Department of Health convened leaders from throughout the state for the "Turning the Tide on the Opioid Epidemic" summit.

During the summit, participants identified four areas of focus to address gaps:

1) Reducing opioid use in emergency departments
2) Reducing opioid use in perioperative settings
3) Engage clinicians to adopt appropriate opioid prescribing
4) Inform patients about risks and appropriate use of prescribed opioids

ONE Tennessee was established in 2018 as a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization chartered in Tennessee,, charged with facilitating collaboration among organizations, health care providers and others to promote patient safety and better health through education about safe management of pain and opioid therapy.

Our Current Projects

Academic Detailing

Academic Detailing (AD) is a one-on-one, clinical based outreach educational technique to help clinicians provide evidence-based care to patients. Trained academic detailers meet with clinicians to assess individual needs, and needs of the practice. These educators then offer tailored, evidence-based clinical recommendations.

ROUTE ONE

ROUTE ONE is a collaborative project between ONE Tennessee and Vanderbilt University Medical Center that offers education to physicians, nurses, advanced practitioners, and other health care professionals by delivering a high-value, convenient mobile learning experience to their fingertips.

There are currently 101 nurses testing in our pilot training program that will be completed at the end of October 2020. We expect to open registration for the complete training program beginning in February 2021.
