Pain Management and Psychiatry
Jul 28th, 2017 by medicalmind
As psychiatrists see more referrals for substance use disorders, we examine their role in managing pain. Carlos Blanco, Eric Collins, Alla Landa, Martin Cheatle, and Ivan Montoya weigh in on common pitfalls, alternatives to opioids, and a framework for treating pain. You can learn more about substance use disorders and medication-assisted treatment at https://www.psychiatry.org/patients-families/addiction. Information about the Providers’ Clinical Support System for Medication Assisted Treatment is at www.pcssmat.org.
Funding for this initiative was made possible (in part) by Providers’ Clinical Support System for Medication Assisted Treatment (1U79TI026556) from SAMHSA.
