A multi-dimensional approach can offer more options, flexibility and independence for patients, and can help empower them in their own pain management abilities and coping skills. At the same time, it also offers clinicians the ability to choose the optimal and most effective intervention, while contributing to the cost-effectiveness and efficiency of the health care system.
