Provide Valuable Input on Access to Pain and Substance Use Disorder Treatment
The American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) would like to encourage members to provide input on barriers to patient care for pain and substance use disorder treatment by completing surveys launched by the American Medical Association (AMA).
As one of the organizations in the AMA Opioid Task Force, ASA is encouraging its’ members to complete these online surveys in order to try and better understand the depth and effects on barriers to care. The surveys take about 10-15 minutes of your time to complete and are open through Wednesday, May 8.
After the surveys are closed, AMA and ASA will review the data to determine most appropriate next steps. This analysis will likely take several weeks, findings will be reported as soon as the analysis is complete.
Thank you for your support and valuable input.
