Statement of Need

Developing actionable steps to promote appropriate prescribing for individuals with acute and chronic pain is imperative to curbing the impact of the growing opioid crisis facing our communities.

This 3-part online series reflects the insights and guidance from experts in pain medicine, primary care, addiction, orthopedic surgery, oral surgery, the physician assistant community, and the DEA Educational Foundation. Part 1 is focused on the pain landscape, including the different types of pain and pain pathways, the 2016 CDC Guideline for Prescribing Opioids for Chronic Pain, non-pharmacologic options for managing pain, and tools for evaluating addiction risk. The goal is to provide best practice strategies for clinicians who encounter and manage patients with acute and chronic pain.
