Provider perspectives on the postpartum pain experience and attitudes about pain management

Project: Research project

Project Details


The postpartum period is a high-risk period for opioid exposure and subsequent persistent use, yet concerns about excessive opioid exposure must also be considered alongside the documented inequities in pain management that exist for minority individuals. Work by our group has demonstrated that healthcare providers offer a wide range of approaches to postpartum pain management and that opioid prescribing is not fully aligned with patient reports of pain. To address gaps in understanding regarding provider factors which influence variations pain management and disparities therein, we propose a qualitative investigation of obstetrical providers to evaluate factors which influence their approach to postpartum pain management, their perspectives on opioid-reduction interventions, and the biases which may contribute disparities in this setting.
