The Patient/Provider Relationship Under Stress & How Do We Improve It? — Part 1 of a two-part series
In 2022, U.S. Pain Foundation conducted a survey to better understand the impact of chronic pain. Respondents included 2,275 people with chronic pain (96%), defined as pain lasting three months or more, as well as 72 caregivers (3%) and 31 health care professionals (1%).
U.S. Pain is hosting a two-part webinar series looking at one of the main findings – the breakdown of the patient/provider relationship – and how to mend it.
The Problem – Sept. 27 | 1-2:30pm ET
Nicole Hemmenway, CEO of U.S. Pain, will share data points from the survey addressing the problem. She will be joined by CMS’s Morgan Taylor. Morgan is the Technical Advisor and Human–Centered Design Lead of the Customer Focused Research Group who worked on the creation of the CMS Chronic Pain Journey Map. Morgan will discuss what CMS heard, and therefore depicted in the Journey Map, about the patient-provider relationship and the challenges people with pain face in seeking care. Two patients will then share their struggles to find care, and the stigma they encountered.
