5.0 DISCUSSION AND RECOMMENDATIONS

5.1 Introduction

The preceding section of the report provided information on the etiology, diagnosis, treatment and management of an in-depth example of chronic pain by specifically discussing fibromyalgia. Section 4.0 presents a dialogue designed to inform the Jesse & Julie Rasch Foundation of items to consider when engaging in the area of chronic pain, recommendations for areas of research to consider and identification of specific resources that are currently required. The discussion is premised by the information obtained from the environmental scan and the key informant interviews done to date with clinicians working directly with individuals with chronic pain and specifically fibromyalgia.
