SIS Champions Accurate Diagnosis for Best Treatment Plans

Wednesday, September 12, 2018  
On September 10, 2018, SIS submitted a letter to the Department of Health and Human Services Pain Management Best Practices Inter-Agency Task Force, urging the group to prioritize accurate diagnosis in determining appropriate pain management treatment options. The Task Force is charged with updating best practices and developing recommendations that address gaps or inconsistencies for managing chronic and acute pain. SIS commends the Task Force for its work and recommends that when assessing the merits of different practice guidelines and systematic reviews in informing best practices the Task Force ensure that they are based on the best available evidence – studies of appropriately selected patients, with the proper indications, and implementing evidence-based procedural technique.
