Kevin Zacharoff, MD: The Challenges of Managing Patients with Chronic Pain


There is a lot of regulatory scrutiny, media attention, and confusion about managing pain, so patient education should be at the forefront of physicians' minds.

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.
