Evaluation about ways state regulatory practices affect clinical pain management
One of the barriers to good care at the end of life is states' regulatory apparatus that can have a "chilling" effect on physicians who are following standard medical practice in prescribing controlled substances for the treatment of pain in terminally ill patients. Under this grant, project staff will work with state medical boards and representatives of nursing and pharmacy boards to enable the boards to make more informed decisions with regard to physician practice in the treatment of pain. It will also use data obtained from national data surveillance systems as a basis for discussion between state prescription monitoring system personnel and clinical and research experts in pain management to strike a better balance between monitoring abuse of controlled substances and allowing physicians to address the needs of patients experiencing pain.
