Stepped care model for pain management and quality of pain care in long-term opioid therapy

Brent A. Moore, PhD, et al.

The Pain Care Quality (PCQ) extraction tool was used to examine the effect of interventions to improve primary care provider???s quality of pain care. The study examined electronic health records of patients receiving opioid medication in one Veterans Health Administration (VHA) healthcare system over 4 years and a non-VHA Federally qualified health center over 2 years. Documentation of reassessment of pain and pain education improved in the VHA. Results suggest that the PCQ extraction tool is feasible and may be responsive to change in the context of efforts to promote organizational improvements in pain care of Veterans.
