NCIL Statement of Principles on Chronic Pain and Opioids

As a response to people with chronic pain experiencing increasing barriers to adequate pain treatment, the National Council on Independent Living created the Chronic Pain / Opioids Task Force. The goal of the Task Force is to work to ensure the voices of people with chronic pain and other disabilities are part of the ongoing national discussion, and to develop a national strategy around this important issue. The Chronic Pain / Opioids Task Force has created the following Statement of Principles to guide NCIL’s work, and we hope our members will be able to use this to guide their advocacy on this issue as well.

The NCIL Statement of Principles on Chronic Pain and Opioids is available in PDFWord, and plain text.

    I don’t see the Statement of principles posted even though it says it is?
