Using a novel commercial telehealth platform to deliver pain management care and guided opioid tapering among post-operative head and neck cancer patients


Head/neck cancer patients experience high pain after surgery, putting them at risk for persistent postoperative opioid use. Using a comprehensive CBT-facilitated telehealth platform seems to be beneficial and approachable for head/neck cancer patients (n = 6) to adequately manage pain after surgery, and ultimately taper 100% off post-surgical opioids. Reduction and cessation of new and persistent opioid use after surgery is possible for head/neck cancer patients.
