Chronic pain affects 100 million Americans and places a significant burden on patients and their families. Opioids are frequently used to manage chronic pain, and their potential for misuse, addiction, and adverse effects are of growing concern in Vermont. Increasing patient awareness of different pain management options could decrease patient suffering and mitigate the opioid epidemic. This project aimed to educate patients on chronic pain management and resources available in Franklin County.
