As required by the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act of 2016 (CARA), the public has an opportunity to provide comments on the Draft Report on Pain Management Best Practices: Updates, Gaps, Inconsistencies, and Recommendations (Draft Report) during a 90-day public comment period, which ends April 1.

The Pain Management Best Practices Inter-Agency Task Force developed the Draft Report which identifies gaps or inconsistencies and proposes updates to best practices and recommendations for pain management, including chronic and acute pain as required by CARA.

On January 16, Cindy Steinberg, National Director of Policy and Advocacy for U.S. Pain Foundation and the only patient and patient advocacy representative on the task force, presented a webinar on the report, why it matters and how to weigh in.

Her discussion covers the following questions:

  • Why was this report created?
  • What was the charge to the PMTF?
  • Who created the report?
  • Was there public input?
  • What is in the report?
  • Why does this matter/what does it mean for me?
  • How does it differ from the National Pain Strategy (NPS)?
  • How do I get a copy? How do I comment?
