- •The Opioid Risk Tool was evaluated on pain patients with and without an opioid use disorder.
- •The opioid Risk Tool was able to discriminate between patients with and without opioid use disorders (odds ratio, 1.624).
- •An Opioid Risk Tool removing the preadolescent sexual abuse item had similar results (odds ratio, 1.648).
- •An unweighted Opioid Risk Tool without the sexual abuse item was superior (odds ratio, 3.085).
