Role of Allied Health Professions in Treating Pain
As the U.S. faces a growing opioid addiction crisis, the health care system needs to ensure access to, maximize the use of, and optimally deploy providers who can help patients prevent and manage pain in order to reduce use of opioid pain medications. This study will examine the role that allied health professionals currently in delivering evidence-based, non-opioid pain management interventions, and how their training and education may allow expanded use of these providers in addressing the growing opioid crisis.
