Oregon Pain Guidance (OPG) is a group of healthcare providers from Jackson and Josephine Counties in Southern Oregon, who are working together on standardizing community guidelines and best practices for treating patients with chronic pain. An improved quality of life for people with chronic pain can be achieved when patients and their families work closely with their healthcare providers. This website provides educational information, news, community resources and upcoming events for both the public and healthcare providers.
We encourage other organizations to make use of these guidelines, including modifying them with local information and resources.
Our process for assisting other organizations to create their own version:
Please send us some background on your organization and your intended use of the guidelines.
We will send you a Microsoft Word document for you to modify, using track changes. Also include any additional pages and attachments – e.g. local resources and contacts.
We take your changes and create a new, professionally formatted PDF, customized for your organization, that you can print, distribute electronically, or post on your website. We charge for the time involved. Typically this is a nominal fee if your changes are not extensive.
Monthly we send out the date and agenda for the OPG Meetings which are open to anyone to attend via phone dial-in. (Video conferencing coming soon.) Periodically we send out important news and announcements. We do not pass emails onto any other organization. We review requests before agreeing to add someone to the list.
