We greatly appreciate the clinicians and staff from the clinics from the WWAMI Practice-Based Research Network who participated in the study that led to the development of these materials. They are our teachers, and the true heroes who every day face the challenges of providing compassionate patient-centered care to people with chronic pain who use opioids long-term.

Brooke Ike deserves special recognition as she led the effort to translate study materials and experiences into the resources and tools you find here on this website. Mark Stephens led the website development.
