Revised Advisory Ruling 0901: Management of Pain


At the May 10, 2017 Board of Registration in Nursing (Board) meeting, the Board revised Advisory Ruling (AR) 0901: Management of Pain to ensure compliance with current statutes, regulations and scope of practice standards.

The AR guides the practice of the LPN, RN and APRN in promoting patient access to appropriate, therapeutic and effective assessment, diagnosis and management of acute and chronic pain; improving communication about benefits and risks of long-term opioid therapy for chronic pain; promote safe, effective multimodal pain management.  Evidence-based, patient-centered, collaborative pain assessment and management serves to improve the quality of life for those patients who suffer from non-treatment, under-treatment, over-treatment, or ineffective pain management; effectively reducing associated morbidity and cost.

The Massachusetts Association of Nurse Anesthetists is deeply saddened to learn of the loss of Dr. Lina Bolanos and Dr. Richard Field this weekend in Boston, MA. Our prayers go out to their families and the entire anesthesia community.
