Kevin Zacharoff, MD: The Challenges of Managing Patients with Chronic Pain
SEPTEMBER 07, 2016
At PAINWeek 2016, Kevin Zacharoff, MD, continued the discussion about the challenging areas of managing patients suffering from chronic pain. He stressed the importance of communication when dealing with any patient, as opposed to merely checking off a list of basic information about the patient. Zacharoff also noted that in the current practice of medicine, patients also have a level of responsibility in the management of their medication, so healthcare providers should be particularly mindful of extending knowledge to these patients.
