Beth Darnall's Research: Opioid Tapering in Community Outpatients With Chronic Pain

Beth Darnall, author of The Opioid-Free Pain Relief Kit and Less Pain, Fewer Pills, is in the news. 

She is the lead author of an important study published in JAMA Internal Medicine. It is a study of voluntary, patient-centered opioid tapering in outpatients with chronic pain. 

Read the research paper. 

The Stanford Pain Medicine Twitter feed does a good job of explaining the implications: 

"Patient-centered, voluntary opioid tapering shows good patient engagement, significant opioid reduction in 4 months *without increased pain* (Potential low-cost, comfortable solution for some patients.)"
