Adapted Clinical Guidelines
- Adapting Your Practice: Recommendations for the Care of Homeless Adults with Chronic Non-Malignant Pain (2011) | HCH Clinicians’ Network | The recommendations in this document specify what experienced clinicians know works best for patients experiencing homelessness, with the realistic understanding that limited resources, fragmented health care delivery systems, and loss to follow-up often compromise adherence to optimal clinical practices. These recommendations provide helpful guidance to health care professionals serving adults with chronic non-malignant pain who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, and that will contribute to improvements in both quality of care and quality of life for these patients.
