Use of Opioids in Latin America: The Need of an Evidence‐Based Change
ConclusionsThe CPLA advisory panel considered the “Safe and effective use of opioids for chronic non‐cancer pain” (published in 2010 by the NOUGG of Canada) to be valid, relevant to Latin America, practical, evidence‐based, concise, unambiguous, and sufficiently educational to provide clear instruction on OU and pain management and, thus, recommended for uniform adoption across the Latin America region.

Consensus Recommendations on Initiating Prescription Therapies for Opioid ‐Induced Constipation
ConclusionsThe BFI is a simple assessment tool with a validated threshold of clinically significant constipation. Prescription treatments for opioid‐induced constipation should be considered for patients who have a BFI score of ≥30 points and an inadequate response to first‐line interventions.

Adverse Event Rates Associated with Transforaminal and Interlaminar Epidural Steroid Injections: A Multi‐Institutional Study
ConclusionsBoth transforaminal and ILESI are safely performed with low immediate and delayed adverse event rates when informed by evidence‐based procedural guidelines. By demonstrating comparable safety, this study suggests that the choice between ILESI and TFESIs can be based on documented efficacy and effectiveness and not driven by safety concerns.

Cancer Recurrence and Regional Anesthesia: The theories, the data, and the future in outcomes
ConclusionsThe benefits of regional anesthesia in reducing cancer recurrence have a sound theoretical basis and, in certain cancers, are supported by the existing body of literature. This article outlines the current state of our knowledge on the relationship between cancer progression and regional analgesia. (Source: Pain Medicine)

Cognitive‐Motivational Influences on Health Behavior Change in Adults with Chronic Pain
ConclusionWhile patients with musculoskeletal pain have outcome expectancies that are nearly in line with research on behavioral pain treatments, their stringent requirements for symptom benefit may impede engagement in the health behaviors recommended for their pain‐related symptoms. Additional psychometric study with larger sample sizes is needed to further validate the BET‐CP. (Source: Pain Medicine)
