Fred Amell MD is an attending hospital medicine physician at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center, where he is Chair of the hospital network’s Opioid Stewardship Committee.  He has led several large quality improvement trials aimed at reducing excessive prescribed opioid use in hospitals, while increasing the usage of other less-harmful approaches to managing severe, acute, and chronic pain.  He has benefited a great deal from collaboration with the multiple experts that he brought together in his committee, including specialists from acute pain service, chronic pain service, palliative care, psychiatry, chaplaincy, social work, and pharmacy. As part of his own chronic pain coping strategy, he has practiced meditation regularly with Zen Chaplain, Gendo Allyn Field.
