Applying Clinical Practice Guidelines to Prescribing Opioids for Acute Pain: A Workshop
The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine Committee on Evidence-based Clinical Practice Guidelines for Prescribing Opioids for Acute Pain will be hosting two public workshops as part of its information gathering activities. The first public workshop will be held on Monday, February 4, 2019, from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM ET, at the Keck Center in Washington, DC.
This workshop will feature invited presentations and panel discussions on topics including:
•Identifying and prioritizing surgical procedures and medical conditions associated with acute pain for which opioid analgesics are prescribed and considered clinically necessary (i.e., develop a list not to exceed 50 of surgical procedures and medical conditions) where evidenced-based clinical practice guidelines would help inform prescribing practices.
•Identifying what evidence is necessary or missing for each procedure/condition mentioned above.
•Using evidence to inform the development of clinical practice guidelines for opioid prescribing for acute pain.
The workshop will be accessible to the public via live webcast and in-person attendance (seating is limited). Please register online to receive an email with the instructions on how to join this workshop.
