Pause is a pathway for physicians and pharmacists to manage chronic or benign pain. It is about taking a moment to pause and consider alternatives to opioids. It is designed in collaboration with Pain Management and Addiction Medicine, supported by literature, and tested by emergency medicine and hospitalist medicine physicians.
We want to remind providers to take a moment to pause and contemplate alternatives to opioids.
