Pain Management: What’s New?
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently released an update to the pain management guidelines in response to the backlash from the original 2016 release. This presentation will review how these guidelines are formed, what has changed, and why. We will also discuss medications that have newly come to the market in the past three years, as well as drugs scheduled for FDA review all with pain or opioid use disorder indications. This presentation is designed to provide a timely update for what is new in managing pain.
