Opioid Use Disorder Treatments: An Evidence Map

Evidence maps are based on targeted literature searches and the sorting of eligible studies on a narrow or broad topic, which results in an underlying dataset and an overlying visual electronic document, or map. Currently, there is no existing visual representation of gaps in opioid use disorder (OUD) research.

Our OUD Treatment Evidence Map aims to visualize all available opioid use disorder treatment and prevention studies using a visual and text-based schematic. It highlights the density (multiples) of studies in a given cross-section of intervention and outcome, the strength of evidence supporting a treatment effect (for systematic reviews and meta-analyses), and interventions and outcomes lacking studies. You can click on the image below to access the full online Evidence Map tool.

The Evidence Map for Opioid Use Disorder Treatment is a visual representation of evidence across the entire landscape of possible treatments and outcomes for patients with opioid use disorder. It is organized by Outcomes on the x-axis and Interventions on the y-axis, and each  node represents the number of studies testing a particular intervention or outcome combination.
