Congratulations to Rehabilitation Science alum Trevor Lentz, PT, PhD, MHA, assistant professor in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at Duke University School of Medicine, who was recently published in the New England Journal of Medicine Catalyst: Innovations in Healthcare Delivery. His work entitled, “Managing Multiple Irons in the Fire: Continuing to Address the Opioid Crisis and Improve Pain Management during a Public Health Emergency,” outlines six major challenges that health care organizations, payers, policymakers and providers must overcome to operationalize integrated pain management programs and ensure continued progress in combating the opioid crisis, despite an ongoing public health crisis.

Great work, Dr. Lentz!
