Now Available: The ASSH Opioid Protocols and Handout Repository
August 14, 2018
2018

By Julie Adams, MD - Increasing public and professional attention has recently been focused upon the opioid epidemic. In part due to well meaning efforts to “adequately treat pain” and the thought that “pain is a vital sign”, as well as the erroneous message that opioids were not addictive, physicians began to prescribe an increasing number of opioid medications in the late 1990s.

Update on the Opioid Crisis
What you need to know as a hand surgeon
2018

The opioid epidemic is receiving increasing attention from organized medical societies including the ASSH and AMA, but also from the US government. Recently, HR6, the Substance Use-Disorder Prevention that Promotes Opioid Recovery and Treatment (SUPPORT) for Patients and Communities Act, passed in the US House. It will now go to the US Senate. 

AMA Annual Meeting Report 2018
June 2018
2018

The AMA held its 2018 annual meeting of the House of Delegates (HOD) from June 9th to the 13th at the Hyatt Regency in Chicago, Illinois.  The AMA Hand Caucus convened its meeting at 5:00 PM, Saturday November 9th, immediately following the opening assembly of the House of Delegates. The Hand Caucus consists of the primary and alternate delegates to the AMA from the ASSH and the AAHS as well as all interested hand surgeons representing the various AMA state and specialty (e.g.-AAOS, ASPS, etc.) societies.  It also includes hand surgeons who may be officers of the AMA. The purpose of the caucus is to discuss matters before the HOD that are of common interest to hand surgeons (and our patients) and to make recommendations regarding voting on these matters.  Hand caucus members not only vote individually but they can (and do) influence the votes of others in their delegation as well as the entire HOD (using appropriate means of communication and persuasion). In addition, your AMA Delegates and Alternates participate in other caucuses, such as the Plastic Surgery, Orthopedic, Musculoskeletal, and Surgery Caucuses, as well as the Specialty and Service Society (SSS), where all specialty delegates and alternates convene. This year, to enhance the voice of musculoskeletal medicine and surgery, the ASSH, AAHS, AOA, and eleven other musculoskeletal specialty organizations formed the Mobility Caucus.  This caucus has more voting members than any seated state delegation.
