Best Practices for Pain Management

JAMA. 2019;321(8):734. doi:10.1001/jama.2019.0889

An interagency task force on pain management best practices recently issued a draft report calling for a patient-centered approach.

The 29-member expert panel’s mission is to identify gaps in or inconsistencies between best practices for acute and chronic pain management. Task force members reviewed various clinical practice guidelines for pain management and public comments from patients and family members, among others.
