The goal is to document efficacy of PF-SCS therapy in a blinded fashion and better understand how SCS therapy works in the clinical setting. Overall the investigators hope to improve patient care and selection of candidates who have the best potential for effective pain relief from an expensive and invasive therapy.
The overarching plan for TOWER is to develop and test an algorithmic version of the Center for Disease Control Guidelines (CDCG) tailored for a specific primary care setting, the HIV primary care clinic. This CDCG intervention incorporates communication and implementation strategies tailored for the HIV primary care setting, and enabled with technology (an app for use by patients and EMR tools for providers).
The long-term goal is to define best practices for diminishing the risk of high opioid doses used to treat chronic non-cancer pain (CNCP) patients while optimizing pain outcomes and functional levels of activity, emotional functioning, and quality of life. The short-term goal is to assess the feasibility of multiple Clinical and Translational Research Award (CTSA) sites working together to perform and study the effects of a cognitive behavioral therapy intervention in a future randomized controlled trial (RCT) among CNCP patients in rural primary care practices in each CTSA state.
This study seeks to investigate lidocaine infusion to reduce postthoractomy pain syndrome after thoracic Surgery
This study evaluates the analgesic effect of Omnitram for the treatment of painful diabetic neuropathy. Each subject with diabetic neuropathy will be treated for four weeks with Omnitram and for four weeks with placebo. The order of the Omnitram and placebo treatment will be random.
A study to help manage chronic pain in cancer survivors through Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) after undergoing active cancer treatment, such as surgery, chemotherapy, and/or radiation.
Post-mastectomy pain affects more than half of patients undergoing the procedure and can last for years. It has been well established that development of chronic pain is related to experienced pain in the perioperative period. This study therefore aims to assess if both acute and chronic post-operative mastectomy pain can be better managed by a novel regional anesthesia nerve block known as the pectoralis block (PECs). The PECs block is easier for patients to position for placement, has less risk of harm to nearby structures, and less risk for systemic uptake of local anesthetic in comparison to the paravertebral block. The PECs block has a strong safety profile. Standard of care at University of Wisconsin (UW) hospital is to utilize regional anesthesia for post op pain management. While PVB is performed on a regular basis at UW per surgeon request, Surgeon can request for PECS block in patients where a PVB was contraindicated (ie. coagulation issues). PECS is in fact the standard of care at other hospitals. This study will assess outcomes in the post anesthetic care unit (PACU), post-operative day 1, 7 and 30.
This study seeks to determine the feasibility of recruiting and training participants in self-acupressure, for women undergoing primary breast cancer surgery or delayed reconstruction surgery. The study seeks to determine also if self-acupressure is effective in reducing the need for opioids post-surgery and the effects on other life factors.
This study evaluates the effects of a pain neuroscience education (PNE) and physical exercise (PE) program in patients with chronic back pain. Half of participants receive PNE and PE program supervised by a physiotherapist and the other half receive usual physiotherapy care supported by physiotherapy protocols in primary care.
