The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is announcing a public workshop entitled “Data and Methods for Evaluating the Impact of Opioid Formulations with Properties Designed to Deter Abuse in the Postmarket Setting: A Scientific Discussion of Present and Future Capabilities.”
The purpose of the public workshop is to host a scientific discussion with expert panel members and interested stakeholders about the challenges in using the currently available data and methods for assessing the impact of opioid formulations with properties designed to deter abuse on opioid misuse, abuse, addiction, overdose, and death in the postmarket setting. The goal of this meeting is to discuss ways to improve the analysis and interpretation of existing data, as well as to discuss opportunities and challenges for collecting and/or linking additional data to improve national surveillance and research capabilities in this area.
The FDA released an "issue paper" prior the event.
