Opinion: Listen: How should doctors treat chronic pain in the wake of the opioid crisis?

May 4, 2022

Clinicians walk a tightrope when trying to help their patients with chronic pain. They want to be able to ease a patient’s suffering with medication, but must be mindful of the risks of addiction. There are some non-medication treatments for pain, but they’re often hard to access or not covered by insurance. Finding the balance can be challenging and emotionally taxing. And in the wake of the opioid crisis, many clinicians tend to err on the side of caution and under-treat pain. Antje M. Barreveld and Haider J. Warraich are two physicians deeply familiar with this balancing act. Having seen the heartbreaking effects that opioids can have on patients and their families, both physicians strive to find the right path forward. In this week’s “First Opinion Podcast,” they discuss how to treat chronic pain adequately and ethically. “My entire residency was dominated by opioids, just like today the residencies are dominated by Covid,” Warraich said. advertisement Be sure to sign up for the weekly “First Opinion Podcast” on Apple Podcasts ,  Stitcher ,  Google Play , or wherever you get your podcasts. advertisement And if you have any feedback — First Opinion authors to feature on the podcast, vocal mannerisms the host needs to jettison, kudos or darts — email us at [email protected]  and please put “podcast” in the subject line.
