Chronic Pain Management & Opioid Use

For patients with chronic pain an important clinical endpoint is being able to freely participate in activities of daily living, regardless of their underlying health status.

OPEN researchers employ a variety of research methods to:

  • Understand and improve the attitudes, perceptions, and knowledge of chronic pain among healthcare providers
  • Determine how chronic pain clinical competencies, including pharmacotherapeutic management and safe opioid use, can be incorporated into a specialized training programs
  • Determine the feasibility, acceptability, and clinical impact of pharmacist-led clinical service programs on management of chronic pain in community pharmacies and family health teams

Interacting closely with chronic pain management is the appropriate use of opioid medications. OPEN researchers develop educational, advocacy, and clinical tools for clinicians to facilitate the safe and effective use of these important medications.
