On December 4–5, 2019, a meeting of the Board of Scientific Counselors of the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (BSC/NCIPC) was held at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta, Georgia. CDC provided a background presentationpdf icon on a potential update or expansion of the CDC Guideline for Prescribing Opioids for Chronic Pain —United States, 2016. CDC also provided a presentationpdf icon pertaining to the request that the BSC/NCIPC establish an Opioid Workgroup. The BSC/NCIPC listened to and considered both presentations and the public comments that followed, prior to voting to establish the Opioid Workgroup.  The workgroup will report to the BSC/NCIPC, which is a federal advisory committee.
