Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE Evaluation of Risk Minimization, Assessment and Outcomes in Patients With Chronic Pain Taking Avinza
Official Title  ICMJE AVINZA Control of Chronic Pain, Effectiveness and Safety Study (ACCESS 2008) A Multi-Center Study to Evaluate the Effectiveness and Tolerability of AVINZA for Chronic Moderate-Severe Pain: A Focus on Risk Minimization Assessment, Intervention and Outcomes
Brief Summary The purpose of this study is to provide information in a broad, "real world" population of chronic pain patients assessing both pain control with AVINZA as well as the potential risk for misuse and abuse.
Detailed Description

Pain affects more Americans than diabetes, heart disease and cancer combined and although it is one of the earliest known ailments, pain is still without a universal cure. It is estimated that only about 25% of patients with chronic pain receive adequate analgesia.

Long-term treatment of chronic pain with opioids is recognized as an important treatment option for patients with moderate-severe pain related to cancer and other chronic serious illnesses. AVINZA (morphine sulfate extended-release capsules) was approved for marketing by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2002 as a once daily treatment for the relief of moderate to severe pain requiring continuous opioid therapy for an extended period of time. While opioids, such as AVINZA, are beneficial in the management of chronic pain, they are sometimes associated with illicit activities. Misuse, abuse and diversion of controlled prescription drugs, particularly opioids, are problems that have increased dramatically in the United States (U.S.) since the 1990s.

This study will follow the Federation of State Medical Boards Model Policy for the Use of Controlled Substances for the Treatment of Pain. Patients will be counseled on the proper storage and destruction of unused AVINZA in accordance with federal and applicable state laws. A universal precautions approach to chronic pain management (KAIR) will be utilized in this study. Although not validated as a risk assessment and management instrument, KAIR is designed to assist clinicians with responsibly managing chronic moderate-severe pain patients prescribed AVINZA. The KAIR tools will be used by the Investigator to determine the level of monitoring required based on the patient's potential risk for opioid misuse or abuse (KAIR level). Investigators and staff participating in this study will be required to participate in a training program on the counseling to be given, procedures to be followed and tools to be used in this study.
