Power of Pain Foundation recognizes that Abuse Deterrent Formulations are only a step forward
toward drug diversion. We know this isn’t the final answer. It allows an option for patients to
continue to be treated with opioid analgesics and removes many of the barriers involved in non abuse
POPF Pain Community Needs Assessment Survey
We are not focusing on any one treatment option, we are improving upon the patient/provider
The purpose of our survey was to determine who is having trouble getting access to quality care.
who is being dismissed, who is being cared for by a primary physician, who is being sent to pain
management and who is having difficulty receiving ongoing pain care.
We are aware of many individuals who are not receiving proper medication management or treatment
and others who had been receiving care that are now facing obstacles.
Our goal is continued access to care. Our goal is patient empowerment.
