Prevalence of chronic pain: an overview
Alberta Heritage Foundation for Medical Research (AHFMR) HTA Report #29.
The aim of this report was to present and critically appraise the published evidence on the prevalence of chronic non-malignant pain in the general population and the primary care setting. A secondary objective was to summarize all the available information in the primary studies about characteristics of pain (i.e., level of severity and functional limitations) and the use of health services in the population of CP sufferers.
NOTE: In 2006 the Alberta Heritage Foundation for Medical Research HTA unit moved to IHE. Documents produced in and prior to 2006 have different formats; the format was determined by the agency for which the document was produced.
