Wednesday, October 11, 2017 07:52 AM

These consumers’ criticisms of care services were consistent, however, with dissatisfaction with their access to care, overall management of their pain, and noteworthy variations in the treatment they received.

“We are in an epidemic of opioid addiction, but the solution is not just to attack opioids, it's to attack pain," said Eric Schoomaker, MD, PhD, professor and vice-chair for Leadership, Centers and Programs in the Department of Military & Emergency Medicine at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in Bethesda, Md.

One key challenge to addressing pain management is the inability to objectively assess it, he said.
