Advice

  • Pain medications should not be withheld for painful conditions simply because a patient is deemed “high risk” by the ORT, but these patients should be considered for other modalities of pain control if appropriate.
  • These high risk patients may be appropriate candidates for referral to pain management.
  • Providers should exercise caution when starting any patient on chronic opiates.
