Mission Statement

Emerging Solutions in Pain (ESP) is an ongoing educational initiative developed to address some of today's most critical issues in pain management. These issues involve balancing fundamental rights of patients and clinicians with the challenge of risk containment for opioid misuse, abuse and addiction associated with medical prescribing and use of controlled substances. Through evidence-based scientific data, validated tools, and the expertise of a cadre of leading pain and addiction medicine experts, the ESP program provides clinicians with guidance in the implementation of good practice management techniques. Site features and programs emphasize favorable interaction with regulatory and law enforcement agencies, as well as effective assessment, monitoring and documentation strategies; all of which contribute to the overall goal of optimizing outcomes for patients in pain.
