by Sara Edmond, PhD ; Mark Relyea, PhD
Seminar date: 10/4/2022

Description: Abstract: The Pain Services Evaluation Program is a partnership between the Pain Research, Informatics, Multi-morbidities and Education (PRIME) Center of Innovation at VA Connecticut Healthcare System and the Pain Management, Opioid Safety, and PDMP (PMOP) Office. The mission of the Pain Services Evaluation Program (PSEP) is to support PMOP in the development of best practices for evaluating, implementing, and sustaining high-quality pain care throughout VHA, and to assist PMOP in evaluating the impact of PMOP initiatives towards improved pain management. In this presentation, we will review our mixed-methods approach for our initial evaluation of pain specialty care and pain management teams.

Target Audience: Clinicians, researchers, and policy leaders interested in pain management in VHA
