About the Session

“This session will focus on two key themes: (1) expanding access to effective behavioral pain care and (2) patient-centered approaches to opioid prescribing and deprescribing.

For both themes, healthcare systems must center on meeting patients’ needs broadly, reducing stigma and care disparities, and protecting the individual from homogeneous policies that confer new health risks to subgroups of vulnerable patients. Dr. Darnall will present her group’s work and new solutions across both themes. Andrea Anderson will provide the patient perspective on current unmet needs in an era of opioid hesitancy and systemic barriers to pain care. This session will include a rich discussion on how to drive positive change that will move us into a future where no patient is left behind.”
