Patient Care Philosophy
Each person's medical condition is a unique experience; so each and every diagnosis and treatment depends on the "who," in addition to the "where and when" of an individual's disease.
I continue my lifelong interests in philosophy, literature, and history, and have always enjoyed the visual and performing arts, reading and skiing. I am devoted to listening to and caring for people. Family, friendships and community still matter most.
Multidimensional assessment, evaluation and inter-professional management of acute and chronic pain; medication and non-drug treatments for acute and chronic pain disorders, including musculoskeletal, neuropathic, central and visceral pain syndromes.
Pain assessment strategies, development of pain care pathways, risk stratification in transition from acute to chronic pain disorders, treatment outcomes tracking, and clinical implementation science. Pain medicine curriculum development for medical students, residents, fellows, active practice physicians and other members of the inter-professional pain care team; telemedicine curriculum and outcomes tracking; and development of web-based strategies for collection of pain-related patient-reported outcomes.
