Synthesis of clinical practice guideline recommendations for the primary health care of chronic musculoskeletal pain.


The prevalence of chronic musculoskeletal pain (CMSP) is high and rising. The multidimensional impact of CMSP on individuals necessitates multidisciplinary evidence-based strategies to prevent and manage chronic pain. Primary health care (PHC) is the first point of care in many healthcare systems and evidence implementation at this point is important. We aim to describe the process of development of a comprehensive list of evidence-based recommendations derived from different high-quality clinical practice guidelines (CPGs) to inform the PHC healthcare of adults with CMSP.
