I've worked in a pain clinic for a few years. We mostly do interventional treatment, but of course we prescribe as well. However, with the increase of abuse and diversion, we have all become so jaded, almost automatically assuming people are just drug seeking. I feel like we treat patients like criminals sometimes...random drug screens, pill counts, pharmacy check ups, huge contracts to sign, etc. etc... Obviously we have patients with legitimate pain who really do need opioids. But my question to you guys is, what do you suggest in terms of trying to "re-wire" the way we first perceive our patients? Any articles or anything like that you know of, that I can distribute to our doctors and nurses to help bring some of that negativity down? I just feel like we're doing a disservice to the field; but it's very difficult to work in pain management!
