benefits of opioid therapy for chronic pain, improve the safety and effectiveness of pain treatment, and reduce the risks associated with
long-term opioid therapy, including opioid use disorder and overdose. The
Guideline is not intended for patients who are in active cancer treatment,
palliative care, or end-of-life care. Please click here for more
