Description: In this session, presenters will review the methods and results of a pilot study funded by VHA’s Office of Patient-Centered Care and Cultural Transformation exploring utilization of Complementary and Integrative Health (CIH) services among a cohort of Veterans with chronic pain prescribed long-term opioid therapy. Considering the question of CIH as an opioid-sparing alternative for chronic pain management, presenters will describe the patterns and correlates of CIH utilization in this cohort, and the association between CIH and opioid tapering trends.
