    The Draft Report on Best Practices: Updates, Gaps, Inconsistencies and Recommendations is available for public comments until April 1, 2019 ... index.html

The Pain Management Best Practices Inter-Agency 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 Task Force, which was authorized by section 101 of the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act of 2016 - PDF, will also provide the public with an opportunity to comment on any proposed updates and recommendations and develop a strategy for disseminating information about best practices.

The Task Force consists of representatives from relevant HHS agencies, the Departments of Veterans Affairs and Defense and the Office of National Drug Control Policy. Non-federal representatives include individuals representing diverse disciplines and views, including experts in areas related to pain management, pain advocacy, addiction, recovery, substance use disorders, mental health, minority health and more. Members also include patients, representatives from veteran service organizations, the addiction treatment community and groups with expertise in overdose reversal, including first responders, medical boards and hospitals.

The charter for the Pain Management Best Practices Inter-Agency Working Group was approved by the Secretary of Health and Human Services on October 24, 2017
