New Brief on What People Living with Chronic Pain Want Doctors to Know

A new issue brief has been released entitled "What I Want my Doctor to Know About How Arthritis and Chronic Pain Affect My Everyday Life<http://links.govdelivery.com:80/track?type=click&enid=ZWFzPTEmbXNpZD0mYXVpZD0mbWFpbGluZ2lkPTIwMTkwOTEzLjEwMTUyMTgxJm1lc3NhZ2VpZD1NREItUFJELUJVTC0yMDE5MDkxMy4xMDE1MjE4MSZkYXRhYmFzZWlkPTEwMDEmc2VyaWFsPTE2NzgyMDgzJmVtYWlsaWQ9cnRyb3V0bWFuQG5hY2RkLm9yZyZ1c2VyaWQ9cnRyb3V0bWFuQG5hY2RkLm9yZyZ0YXJnZXRpZD0mZmw9Jm12aWQ9JmV4dHJhPSYmJg==&&&101&&&https://www.air.org/sites/default/files/NIDILRR-Opioid-Issue-Brief-June-2019-508-rev.pdf>" under a grant from the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR).

Based on interviews conducted with people living with a disability due to arthritis, who are on long-term opioids or have stopped taking opioids after developing opioid use disorder (OUD), results from the interviews suggest individuals want their doctors to:

  *   Talk with them in detail about how they can treat chronic pain and improve function;
  *   Treat the whole person, thinking beyond their health condition;
  *   Describe what happens if medication does not control their pain or improve function;
  *   Explain the signs and symptoms of OUD and the treatment plan should they develop OUD; and
  *   Outline other options for managing pain if they develop OUD and cannot take opioids anymore.
