Pain after spinal cord injury: Important predictors, outcomes, and future directions in cost-effectiveness analysis

Academic Article

Abstract

  • This chapter aims to provide a summary of three important areas of research on pain after SCI: methodological concerns, risk factors associated with the development of pain after SCI, and the impact of pain across quality of life domains. In addition, an overview of cost-effectiveness analysis is provided. Given the increasing utilization costs associated with pain treatment, there will be an emerging interest nationally in cost-effectiveness studies as an important area of future SCI pain research.
