Managing Chronic Pain

Tenneessee Pain Society

David Edwards, MD

In the middle of an opioid crisis, the rules are changing rapidly. It is difficult to keep up with the multiple ways that are acceptable to treat patients with chronic pain. What is safe? What should be tried first? How do I even start? When to specialists need to be involved? If I make a wonderful plan with my patient, will it even be covered by insurance? When is it okay to use opioids, and how much is enough? The answers are not always clear, and sometimes neither is the evidence. Dr. Edwards will discuss some strategies and the best available evidence at this time.
