About the Course:
This course examines the link between the existence of chronic pain and pain severity on subsequent opioid use in dependent patients with chronic pain. This study is a secondary analysis of a national, randomized, controlled trial of buprenorphine-naloxone plus counseling for prescription opioid dependent patients. The authors found links with depression, PTSD, anxiety, ADD and bipolar Disorder, and accounted for co-occurring psychiatric disorder variables using a multivariable logistic regression model. This is a moderately research intensive course.
This course is based on the article, Longitudinal association between pain severity and subsequent opioid use in prescription opioid dependent patients with chronic pain created by Margaret L. Griffin, PhD et al. in 2016.
