    • Description:
      Subject of Planned Report: The guidelines will provide clinical practice recommendations on the prescribing of opioids for treating chronic pain based on the best available evidence and expert opinion. The guidelines are intended for primary care providers (e.g., family practitioners, internists) who are treating patients for chronic pain in outpatient settings. Primary care providers account for the greatest number of opioid prescriptions compared to other specialists (e.g., surgeons, dentists, emergency physicians). Some of the recommendations may be relevant for acute care settings, but use in these settings is not the focus of the guidelines. The recommendations are also not intended for guiding medication-assisted treatment for substance use disorders. The guidelines apply to patients > 18 years with chronic pain (i.e., pain lasting longer than 3 months or past the time of normal tissue healing) outside of end-of-life care (e.g., in hospice). Patients include those with and without a current or previous diagnosis of cancer. Patients may or may not have a history of substance use disorder. Special populations (e.g. older adults, pregnant women) will be addressed in supporting text when relevant.
