  4. Pressures on primary care doctors to move away from opioid pain management are increasing, but practitioners need practical, evidence-based information on how to employ multidisciplinary pain care successfully in everyday clinical practice. A senior investigator believes wider use of practical clinical trials and more emphasis on patient self-management are key solutions for achieving wider use of multidisciplinary pain care to improve patient function and help lower use and misuse of opioids.
  5. Patients who had higher pain catastrophizing, the degree of an exaggerated, negative response to pain, were more likely to take opioids for pain relief, a team of investigators found. They found that patients who used opioids to manage their knee pain before their total knee replacement had less pain relief after the operation.
