This Progress Report Card, used in conjunction with Achieving Balance in Federal and State Pain Policy: A Guide to Evaluation (CY 2013), provides a framework for deciding which policies should be addressed, as well as example language to guide the development of new and more balanced policies related to the provision of pain care services. Balance in pain policy can be achieved and maintained if policymakers, healthcare professionals, and regulatory agencies work together and take advantage of available policy resources.
