Management of acute and chronic pain are some of the most common reasons necessitating visits to healthcare providers. Pain management could potentiate or coincide with the misuse or abuse of prescription medications. Active awareness and integration of current Tennessee Chronic Pain Guidelines into practice may help address opioid misuse and abuse from the perspective of the physician, advanced practice provider and pharmacist.
