2019 Opioid Workgroup

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 presentation, Background for Updating the CDC Guideline for Prescribing Opioids on a potential update or expansion of the CDC Guideline for Prescribing Opioids for Chronic Pain—United States, 2016. CDC also provided a presentation Request for Formation of 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 Opioid Workgroup will report to the BSC/NCIPC, which is its parent federal advisory committee. An Update on the BSC/NCIPC Opioid Workgroup Formation was presented at the BSC/NCIPC meeting on July 22, 2020. The Opioid Workgroup Roster and Terms of Reference are available below and, on the Meetings, Minutes and Documents webpage.
