The student analyzes both qualitative and quantitative data collected during the first 24 months of a program of required group visits for chronic pain patients on chronic opiates at the Windsor Street Health Center in Cambridge. They will perform a qualitative analysis of themes raised by these chronic pain patients during the group visit from audiotapes of the sessions. They will perform chart reviews to assess adherence with standards of appropriate prescribing of opiates and will assess patient outcomes in the areas of opiate use, problematic substance use, depression, anxiety, pain and function, as measured by standard clinical scales.
