Steering Committee

The Steering Committee is composed of stakeholders representing national organizations with constituencies having large numbers of opioid prescribers treating chronic pain or opioid use disorder in the United States.
Role/Function of Steering Committee:

Steering Committee members are active participants in PCSS-O. They provide guidance on how to most effectively reach out to prescribers (their constituents) with educational content on best evidence-based opioid therapies and how to generate interest in these educational activities. The Steering Committee reviews and helps evaluate Satisfaction/Quality Assurance data collected yearly and offers guidance on improvements to the project to better meet the needs of prescribers. Some Steering Committee members also take on educational roles, providing training to providers on special topics relevant to PCSS-O, including opioid therapies and pain management. Below see a listing of Steering Committee member organizations (to date).
