CALL TO ACTION: Pain Management Treatment
Prescription Drug Monitoring Program: We need testimony ASAP, please email Robyn Elliott, MNA's Lobbyist at firstname.lastname@example.org
- Have you interacted with patients who have had difficulty in being adequately treated for pain management?
- Have you had concerns that you would be restricted from prescribing sufficient pain medication for your patients.
o Need nurses who have patients at bedside or APNs with patients who have had difficulty in getting pain meds
o Need patients to speak to this subject – difficulty accessing pain medication
o If you personally have not had issues, please ask your colleagues for assistance
We have several issues that will be in play for the 2019 Maryland General Assembly. We will keep you posted, and I will send out a "How To" in interacting with our policy makers soon!
