I have a question about CRNAs' scope of practice. Do CRNAs write Rx for pain out side the surgical setting, like at clinics that specialize in managing chronic pain. I looked at the AANA's web site, but in this area it seemed a little vague. I have heard that this is one area that remains largely the province of the MDAs, but I have seen some of the CRNA schools
write that they cover this area in their curriculum. I would appreciate hearing from anyone on this topic, but particularly from CRNAs who have practiced chronic pain management, if they are out there.
