Persistent or chronic pain has reached epidemic proportions in the United States and around the world. The individual and societal effects include higher rates of disability, mortality, and numerous adverse health conditions. The management of persistent pain via opioid based pharmacologic interventions has correlated with addiction and premature death. Health care professionals are seeking alternatives to pharmacologic management to meet the needs of their patients without the adverse effects. This project combines artistic animation and video with current evidence to educate health care providers and patients about the viability of virtual reality in the management of persistent pain.
