Thanks to the Experts for illustrating how problematic attitudes toward pain management contributed to the current opioid crisis. Going forward, providers will hopefully exercise more caution and prescribe opioids only for appropriate indications. Inevitably, some situations will arise where opioid therapy is potentially appropriate, yet the risk of addiction is real -- for example, a young patient with cancer who is undergoing curative-intent chemotherapy. How should providers assess individual patient risk for opioid use disorder in such situations? Some tools that have been developed include the Opioid Risk Tool and the Screener and Opioid Assessment for Patients with Pain Revised. Do you use these and/or other tools in your clinical practice? How effective have you found them to be for your patients? Have you run into any pitfalls with using such tools?
