Matthew Bair, MD, MS
Seminar date: 11/6/2018
Description: The presenter will discuss results of the CAMEO trial. The objective of the trial was to compare the effectiveness of pharmacological treatment and optimization vs. cognitive behavioral therapy for Veterans with chronic lower back pain on chronic opioid therapy. The bottom line is that a nurse care management intervention focused on pharmacological management reduced pain impact, severity, and interference more than a behavioral intervention involving cognitive behavioral therapy.
