  • Korina De Bruyne

    Korina De Bruyne

    Clinical Assistant Professor, Medicine - Primary Care and Population Health

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsThe 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. Along the way alternative measures to control pain are also explored. Enrollment is open until 10/2021.
