Primary Care Pain Management In Pennsylvania: Optimizing Treatment, Minimizing Risk

Organization:
Pennsylvania Academy of Family Physicians Foundation

The Initiative will measurably improve interprofessional and interdisciplinary team pain management practices in Pennsylvania by helping select primary care practices and community based clinicians meet the dual challenges of implementing best practices in chronic pain assessment and management with an emphasis on safe and effective opioid therapy and coordination of care for their patients. Guided by the patient--‐centered medical home, a secondary goal is to increase the use of shared decision--‐making to help practices improve the patient experience, while meeting therapy goals and improving patient health outcomes.
