PMID: 31876948.


Benefits of primary care provider (PCP) participation in pain management telementoring have been reported; however, no studies have examined within-patient changes in dose or discontinuation of long-term opioid therapy (LOT). The objectives of this nonrandomized study were to evaluate the relationship between telementoring participation and 1) LOT dose reduction and 2) LOT discontinuation and to 3) explore the relationship between LOT dose changes and patient-reported outcomes.
