    Thank you for sharing this work that addresses factors contributing to the opioid crisis. It's great to see QI work that involves leveraging the skills and talents of inter-disciplinary team in primary care. The data is quite compelling. Will this strategy for identifying patients who are co-prescribed continue or are there plans to evolve the approach?

    Interesting and important topic and tough one to tackle! Wondering how you handled patients at the end of life/palliative who might have appropriate indications for co-prescribing. Also, any striking characteristics of site E's practice that might explain the higher rates of co-prescribing that might be more amenable to focused interventions?

    Thanks for sharing this interesting description of an interprofessional collaboration initiative. What kinds of issues do you plan to explore through the qualitative interviews? Will you be exploring the pharmacist-physician collaboration part? Will you be using the interviews to gain deeper insights concerning the quantitative findings?
