Lyme Disease Association Announces: Public Comments on Pain Management


The Pain Management Best Practices Inter-Agency Task Force (Task Force) was established to propose updates to best practices and issue recommendations that address gaps or inconsistencies for managing chronic and acute pain. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is overseeing this effort with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and U.S. Department of Defense. The Draft Report from the Task Force on Pain Management Best Practices: Updates, Gaps, Inconsistencies, and Recommendations was issued on December 28, 2018, which calls for individualized, patient-centered pain management to improve the lives of millions of individuals who experience acute and chronic pain.

Members of the public are requested to provide comments on the draft report’s proposed recommendations by April 1, 2019. For more information about the Task Force, the report and the comment process please visit the Pain Management Best Practices Inter-Agency Task Force here.
