This webcast originally aired as a live webinar sponsored by AACC and supported by a grant from Waters Corporation on April 9, 2013. In the pain management clinic setting, urine drug testing is used to determine compliance as well as to detect misuse of prescriptive and illicit drugs by patients who are undergoing treatment. On this recording, Dr. Catherine Hammett-Stabler shares her insights on the issues pain clinics face when caring for patients, the drugs that are used by pain clinic clients, and the services labs can provide to help these clinics provide good patient care. More specifically, the recording includes a discussion of how the needs of the pain clinic differ from other aspects of toxicology testing, what labs should consider and recognize regarding the advantages and limitations of using urine toxicology screening in the pain clinic setting, and how labs can play a supporting role for the pain clinic by providing additional testing, consultative services and education.
