Intrathecal pain management continues to evolve. The 2017 Polyanalgesic Consensus Conference (PACC) Guidelines were developed to meet a growing need for updated guidance to keep pace with emerging evidence, changes in patient care, and to fill current gaps in clinical practice. The goal of the updated guidance is to continue to improve safety and efficacy of the global use of intrathecal therapy (IT).
By creating an electronic version of the 2017 PACC guidelines to accompany physicians in daily practice, it is our goal that this application will help physicians all over the world meet the needs of patients for innovative pain management therapies by providing clinical protocols developed by an international panel of experts and driven by the evidence. Along with algorithms, recommendations, and evidence-based guidance, this application will provide audio feedback and translation of the evidence to help apply the concepts in practice.
