HumanInsight Behavioral Health, Telemedicine, and Opportunities for Improving Access

Curr Pain Headache Rep. 2022 Nov 23. doi: 10.1007/s11916-022-01096-w. Online ahead of print.


PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The purpose of this review is to summarize advances in behavioral treatments for pain and headache disorders, as well as recent innovations in telemedicine for behavioral treatments.

RECENT FINDINGS: Research for behavioral treatments continues to support their use as part of a multidisciplinary approach to comprehensive management for pain and headache conditions. Behavioral treatments incorporate both behavioral change and cognitive interventions and have been shown to improve outcomes beyond that of medical management alone. The onset of the COVID-19 public health emergency necessitated the rapid uptake of nontraditional modalities for behavioral treatments, particularly telemedicine. Telemedicine has long been considered the answer to several barriers to accessing behavioral treatments, and as a result of COVID-19 significant progress has been made evaluating a variety of telemedicine modalities including synchronous, asynchronous, and mobile health applications. Researchers are encouraged to continue investigating how best to leverage these modalities to improve access to behavioral treatments and to continue evaluating the efficacy of telemedicine compared to traditional in-person care. Comprehensive pain and headache management should include behavioral treatments to address a variety of behavior change and cognitive targets. Policy changes and advances in telemedicine for behavioral treatments provide the opportunity to address historical barriers limiting access.
