AAFP Gives Members New Tools to Combat Opioid Abuse

The American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) has developed resources to help combat the opioid abuse epidemic, including a chronic pain management toolkit and a continuing medical education (CME) webcast on chronic opioid therapy.

“Family physicians are dedicated to being a part of the solution to help slow this national crisis, and the AAFP is dedicated to providing our members the latest information to refresh our knowledge on opioids and pain management,” said AAFP President Wanda Filer, MD, MBA, in a blog post. “I would encourage us all to review carefully these valuable new members-only resources.”

The toolkit is intended to help family physicians identify gaps in practice flow, standardize evaluation and treatment of chronic pain patients, and facilitate conversations on pain and treatment goals, as well as identify and mitigate risk. The toolkit includes an action plan, pain inventory, work questionnaire, patient–physician medication agreement, opioid risk tool and links to additional resources.
