Drug Abuse vs. Pain Management


Drug Abuse vs. Pain Management – Dr. Howard Heit describes how good pain management has been hindered due to increasing use and misuse of opiate medications. Dr. Heit argues that addiction is a medical condition that is separate from pain and that the growth of addiction should not hinder pain management for patients. This clip was excerpted from a talk given at “The New Understanding of Pain” program. The program was put on by the National Press Foundation in collaboration with The America Public Health Association and was supported by PriCara and the NPF Program Fund.
