Comparing Two Approaches to Help Patients and Doctors Talk about Chronic Pain Treatments — Voices in Pain Care
We are happy to share this research study conducted by Brennan Spiegel, one of our Advisory Board members, and his research team. This study compares two approaches to help patients and doctors talk more effectively about chronic pain treatments and reduce the risks and long-term effects it can have on patients lives.
Chronic pain is defined as persistent pain that can last months or even years. Medications such as opioids have been prescribed by doctors in order to treat chronic pain, but these medications can have negative, long-term side effects on the patient’s life.
