"PAINWeek is a great opportunity to discuss the limits of quantitative urine drug testing results, and what the results can and cannot infer," said McMillin.

This lack of prediction power is due in large part to a wide inter-individual variation in pharmacokinetics.

"The consequences of partial or non-compliance negatively impact patient care, the medical profession, and our society at large," said Gwen McMillin. "We hope this presentation will help guide clinicians with interpretation
