The Action Collaborative on Countering the U.S. Opioid Epidemic is conducting listening sessions to better understand the state of chronic pain management, as experienced by different end-user and stakeholder groups. An additional aim of the listening sessions is to bring greater awareness to any intended and unintended consequences of recent changes to opioid prescribing guidelines and related metrics, as they pertain to the delivery, access, and coordination of chronic pain management and care.

This listening session will focus on the experiences and perspectives of persons living with chronic, non-cancer pain, including their experiences interacting with and navigating the health system. The listening session will feature a guided discussion with a panel of persons with lived experience. Our hope is to better understand the spectrum and diversity of experiences of those living with pain to identify key information needed to address existing practice and system-level gaps in chronic pain management.
