Defining Chronic Pain Ethics

September is Pain Awareness Month

There is a nationwide consensus developing around the ethical issues involved in the diagnosis and treatment of chronic pain. That’s according to an article in the September 2011 issue of Pain Medicine entitled “Defining Chronic Pain Ethics.”

Two of the authors of the article talk about it in this edition of The Bioethics Channel. For more information on September as Pain Awareness Month click here.
