CDC Releases UPDATED Practice Guideline for Prescribing Opioids

November 15, 2022

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently changed its guidelines pertaining to opioid prescribing. The agency’s new 2022 Clinical Practice Guideline for Prescribing Opioids for Pain no longer encourages hard thresholds for pain medication doses and duration.
According to the CDC, these updated guidelines are not to be implemented as inflexible, one-size-fits-all policy or replace clinical judgement about personalized treatment. Further, the new recommendations are voluntary and give health professionals flexibility to support patient care.
