The impact of opioids on the United States and its communities is a constantly growing burden, and all health care providers (HCPs) should be taking a role in addressing the opioid epidemic. While HCPs can feel caught between prescribing guidelines and patients’ needs, it is critical that HCPs understand acute and chronic pain pathways and the underlying mechanisms in order to effectively assess and appropriately manage pain. This understanding is also key to making an impactful difference in their communities.
