An effort is underway for a multidisciplinary group of clinicians to respond to the July 25 PROP petition which requests that the FDA support major label changes to chronic opioid use. A comprehensive discussion among practitioners and interested stakeholders can be seen at this paindr.com blog post.
As a first step to garner support, a new group has been formed known as PROMPT (Professionals for Rational Opioid Monitoring & Pharmaco-Therapy). Clinicians were asked to come forward and offer their support in an effort to draft a response letter outlining significant flaws in the PROP proposal, offering a more reasonable approach that is less likely to adversely affect patients that require legitimate chronic opioid therapy and also to support clinicians in the trenches that are trying to care for these patients.
The current membership list can be viewed HERE.
If you wish to be added to the list of supporting clinicians, please “REPLY” to the “COMMENT” immediately beneath this blog post with your name, credentials, and affiliation (if appropriate). Your name will be added to the signature list below and deleted from the “REPLY” section.
THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR DEDICATION TO PAIN MANAGEMENT AND SUPPORT OF PATIENT CARE!
