Managing patients with chronic pain is challenging, and many different issues need to be addressed – these include psychosocial and employment issues, dependence on opioid medication, poly-pharmacy, decreasing mobility and the emergence of comorbid medical conditions especially metabolic disease and depression. The GPs role as gatekeeper and co-ordinator in pain management strategies for their patients suffering from Chronic Pain is an important one. It has been reported that 11% of the chronic health problems managed by a GP involves chronic pain; however, many GPs feel inadequately qualified or trained to manage these patients with chronic pain. From a patient management perspective, patients want to feel better, GPs want to help patients, and managing complex problems with a team-based approach usually ends up with better, safer outcomes for everyone involved.
