Research poster describing the following:
Chronic pain is a serious health problem that continues to grow in prevalence. A study based on the 2008 Medical Expenditure Panel Survey indicated that chronic pain affects about 100 million adults in the United States, with an estimated annual cost that ranges from $560 to $635 billion. Current medical education on pain management is extremely limited, which in part leads to insufficient pain care by post-graduate health care providers. The program “Supervised Student Chronic Pain Clinic” is designed to help train health professional students to improve their abilities and provide them with experience in interprofessional practice and chronic pain management. The current study serves as a pilot study that will help us to evaluate the feasibility and the effectiveness of this “supervised interprofessional student clinic” approach.
