High Tech Simulations Aim to Reduce Disparities in Pain Care

How health care providers respond to patients’ descriptions of their pain ultimately determines how that pain is managed.

An innovative project hopes to shine a light on how health care providers assess their patients’ risk of opioid misuse, with the goal of improving pain management as part of the national response to the opioid crisis.

Funded as part of the Clinical Research in Pain Management program of the Helping to End Addiction Long-termSM, or NIH HEAL InitiativeSM, this study highlights the role of medical professionals in addressing the opioid epidemic and reducing disparities in pain care.
