Discussion: components for next plan

  • Better education:

    • Medication is not needed to treat all pain
  • Increase communication between patients and providers. Tell patients:
    • About the dangers of taking medications
    • They don't have to take a pain medication if not needed (unlike antibiotics)
    • Provide incentives for getting counseling
  • Provide alternative activities for teens to remove them from unhealthy influences; sports, music, etc.
