6 trajectories identified for acute pain post-emergency department visit
from Clinical Pain Advisor
Six distinct patterns of trajectories for the resolution of acute pain after discharge from the emergency department were identified in a study published in the Annals of Emergency Medicine. The study included participants admitted to the ED with an acute pain condition (lasting ≤2 weeks) who were discharged with an opioid prescription. Participants were asked to complete a diary over a 14-day period in which they were asked to report pain intensity on a 0 to 10 numeric rating scale and pain medication use.
