3. A Rapid Review of Best Practice Guidance to Reduce the Risk of Transition from Acute to Chronic Post-surgical Pain

A Rapid Review of Best Practice Guidance to Reduce the Risk of Transition from Acute to Chronic Post-surgical Pain This research was funded by CIHR – Drug Safety and Effectiveness Network and conducted by investigators affiliated with the following institutions: Summary ? High-quality best practice guidance is lacking for interventions that are generalizable to all surgery patients to reduce the risk of acute post-surgical pain transitioning to chronic. ? Many publications recognized (...) that control of acute post-operative pain was a primary risk factor for transition to chronic pain; however, long-term outcomes such as transition to chronic pain were not provided in supporting evidence for any acute pain management recommendations. ? Specific surgical techniques have been recommended to reduce the risk of transition from acute to chronic post- surgical pain; however, no generalizable interventions for all surgical patients have been strongly recommended within available CPGs or tested
