CDC guidelines: new work group to be appointed

I just noticed this, and it looks like a good sign:

CDC’s Opioid Reset | Tue, Jan 05, 2016 | Peter Pitts

This morning the CDC will ask the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control’s Board of Scientific Counselors to appoint a new work group to review the agency’s draft guideline for prescribing opioids for chronic pain.

It’s the next step in CDC’s effort to address complaints over the secretive way in which the initial draft was developed. Public comments on the draft guideline are due Jan. 13, and the new group will be tasked with reviewing those, too.
