Opioid Prescribing Checklist for Chronic Pain

Medical Team Provider

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have created a checklist for prescribing opioids for chronic pain. This one-page checklist is designed for primary care providers who treat adults ages 18 and older who have been experiencing chronic pain for more than three months, excluding patients with cancer, or with palliative and end-of-life care needs.
