In recognition of the interrelated chronic pain and opioid epidemic, novel therapeutic development efforts are currently underway to better address the multiple mechanisms of pain while reducing abuse potential. Further, federal, state, and other organizations have implemented a variety of policies, guidelines, and programs aimed at supporting appropriate opioid prescription and reducing nonmedical use of opioids in patients with chronic pain. At the forefront of implementing chronic pain management efforts are primary care physicians (PCPs). This interactive symposium will provide PCPs education on safe opioid prescribing, the latest clinical trial data on newer pharmacologic options for chronic pain with reduced abuse potential, and strategies to overcome barriers to access.
