Getting patients to open up about pain has never been easy. Societal and cultural taboos affect how patients talk about pain, even with professionals. Age, gender, and background also change how patients and HCPs engage. However, by acknowledging all of these factors, and asking the right questions, HCPs can connect with patients and open new avenues of conversation. Our new #ListenToPain initiative aims to equip HCPs with a range of tools & resources that can help them achieve better patient outcomes through better HCP-patient conversations.
