Opioid Therapy for Pain in Individuals with Metastatic Cancer: Benefits, Harms and Stakeholder Perspectives

The long-term goal of this program of research is to develop interventions that inform opioid-related decision-making for patients with metastatic cancer. Dr. Merlin and her team will use the Behavioral Decision Research framework to create a comprehensive evidence base on which these interventions can be grounded. From here, they will devise and test novel interventions to inform opioid decision making and study the interventions’ effectiveness and implementation.
