We have created a new hospital position called a Life Pain Specialist™️. We have surveyed over 500 hospitalized patients who were prescribed opioids. 100% said the position is critical to the prevention of addiction. Patients receive evidence-based Opioid dependence risk assessment, nonpharmacological pain management techniques, trauma support, Mental Health First Aid®️, Whole Health inventory, resources, follow-up, and the skills to become a pain coach for others.
