Evidence-Based Clinical Practice Guidelines for the Use in Treating Pain Patients (AAPM)

November 15th, 2013

The American Academy of Pain Medicine (AAPM) and its board of directors has, over the years, researched and approved certain evidence-based clinical practice guidelines for the use in treating pain patients. These guidelines are based on a complete review of the relevant literature by a diverse group of highly trained clinicians and prepared by weighing evidence from rigorous double-blind clinical trials and expert opinion. They continue to be reviewed on a regular basis, and when necessary, re-published.
