Abstract:

To provide current information about states’ pain policies, the PPSG conducted an updated evaluation of policies in effect as of December, 2013, resulting in this report (entitled Achieving Balance in Federal and State Pain Policy: A Guide to Evaluation (CY 2013) (Evaluation Guide 2013)).  The evaluation findings relating to policies governing drug control and medical and pharmacy practice (but not nursing practice) were then used to calculate grades for each state for 2013, which are included in a companion report entitled Achieving Balance in State Pain Policy: A Progress Report Card (CY 2013) (Progress Report Card 2012).
