Chronic Pain: When an Epidemic and Pandemic Collide!
“Chronic Pain: When an Epidemic and Pandemic Collide!” is now up for on-demand viewing. There have been many consequences by adding a pandemic (COVID) to an epidemic (opioids). One of the most dangerous is the impact on people (including injured workers) that are managing chronic pain. That treatment includes the physical pain, but also the anxiety that comes from the pain and lockdown isolation. This panel, featuring Dr. Clark Smith from IOH, discussed the past, present, and lessons learned that can be applied to the future.
