On July 29, 2015, the International Spine Intervention Society joined 13 other medical specialty societies in sending a letter to Elise Berliner, PhD, Director of AHRQ’s Technology Assessment Program. The letter addresses concerns regarding the recently published AHRQ technology assessment Pain Management Injection Therapies for Low Back Pain. The letter requests that due consideration be given to these concerns, and that several aspects of the report be revisited to ensure that the best available evidence is addressed scientifically in order to provide an accurate assessment of the procedures reviewed. The letter is available here and will be submitted for publication shortly.
