Module 07 - Pain Management - Assessing and Treating Persistent Nonmalignant Pain: An Overview
Unrelieved chronic or persistent pain is a significant public health problem in the U.S., with prevalence estimates ranging from 15% to 30%. A World Health Organization (WHO) survey of primary care patients found 21.5% suffered severe pain for most of a 6-month period during the previous year. Persistent pain significantly impacts quality-of-life and is often accompanied by anxiety, depression and sleep disorders, all of which complicate management.
