Upon completion of this activity, the participant should be able to:
- Identify perceived barriers between pain management physicians and law enforcement.
- Identify situations where a positive relationship with law enforcement can help practitioners who are accused of wrong doing by the media or community activists who are against clinicians who treat chronic pain.
- Identify how a relationship can be made with your local law enforcement agency.
Statement of Need
Today, there are many ethical and honest pain management clinicians who seem to be directly and indirectly accused of negligently providing prescription pain medication to be sold on the street. Several pain management specialists throughout the United States have been wrongly identified by uninformed grass roots organizations, as well as the media, as being pill mills contributing to the current prescription drug abuse problem. These press reports that sensationalize overdose deaths and arrests for the possession of prescription narcotics tend to pressure elected officials and law enforcement to react. Having a professional, active relationship with your local law enforcement agency can be extremely helpful in mitigating these situations.
