Telehealth interventions delivered online, over the phone and with and without clinician interaction improved outcomes in patients with chronic musculoskeletal pain in addition to depression and/or anxiety, according to study results recently published in the Journal of General Internal Medicine.
Researchers of the Comprehensive vs. Assisted Management of Mood and Pain Symptoms (CAMMPS) study compared two types of telehealth interventions to determine the effect each had on patients with PAD.
Compared with the ASM group, CSM patients were more likely to report being much more improved (26. 8% vs. 39. 5%) and were less likely to report worsened symptoms (35. 8% vs. 19. 4%).
