Pain is a highly nuanced symptom associated with several comorbidities that add to its complexity. The treatment of pain is furthermore challenging because of its subjective nature and the constantly evolving health care landscape. In the midst of a national opioid crisis, Essentials in Pain Management: Update 2019 was created for all health care providers to gain sound understanding of the current evidence based approaches to multidisciplinary pain management. In addition to discussing the assessment and algorithmic treatment of chronic complex pain syndromes, it also informs the participants about cutting edge non-opioid interventional therapies, current research and its clinical implications, best practices for opioid prescribing, novel nonopioid pharmacotherapeutics and behavioral interventions.
