 Safe Prescribing for Workers' Compensation
 

PAMED and other key stakeholders developed voluntary prescribing guidelines in 2014 for the treatment of chronic non-cancer pain and the emergency department.

Since that time, additional guidelines have been developed by the state and stakeholders, and some existing guidelines like chronic, non-cancer pain have been revised. Most recently, the Pa. Department of Health published Workers' Compensation safe prescribing guidelines on July 16, 2018.


Here are the latest prescribing guidelines to assist you with your practice.

Note: These guidelines are voluntary and not intended to replace a physician’s clinical judgment. They encourage health care providers to incorporate several best practices when caring for patients receiving opioids for the treatment of pain.
