Current Research and Scholarly Interests The EMPOWER study (PI: Dr Beth Darnall) is looking at how to best support patients with chronic pain on long-term opioid therapy through a slow taper (maximal duration of 1 year). Patients are randomized to taper only versus taper plus community-based pain self-management group sessions versus taper plus psychologist-led cognitive behavioral therapy for pain group sessions.
