Patients with chronic pain typically see many specialists, and communication among these providers and with the patient is essential for successful pain management. Yet although multimodal approaches are common, the role of the mental health professional in pain management has not been well defined. Is this an area where behavioral and psychopharmacologic intervention may improve patient outcomes? Should mental health professionals be involved in the care of patients with chronic pain? This session will explore answers to these questions and evaluate the role of the mental health provider in pain management.
