Overview

Patients with chronic pain often experience depression, which is readily diagnosed and treated more often than not. Recognition of co-occurring PTSD is more difficult, yet diagnosis and treatment may significantly improve patient wellbeing and reduce risk for drug related aberrant behavior. This lecture will review diagnosis of mood disorders and PTSD in patients with chronic pain, the assessment of suicide risk, and evidence based interventions and treatments for these co-occurring disorders.

Funding for this initiative was made possible (in part) by grant no. 5U79TI026556-03 from SAMHSA.
