Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Multidisciplinary Pain Clinics (MPCs) follow a model of care that emphasizes managing pain to the extent the patient's independence is restored and overall quality of life improved, rather than complete elimination of pain. Providers from various disciplines collaborate to develop a unique treatment plan consisting of various interventions to meet the patient's individualized needs. The intent of this chapter is to describe the literature in regard to the unique benefits and limitations of MPCs for the treatment of Comorbid Opioid Use Disorder in Chronic Pain.
