ABSTRACT
The article focuses on research in Spain which involved several patients with neuropathic pain of broad aetiology and patients who had been referred to pain clinics from primary care providers. Accordingly, drugs, diagnostic procedures and nondrug therapies were the most commonly used healthcare resources in the study. It says that the extra costs originating from drug acquisition noticed in patients primarily managed at pain clinics were offset by lower costs for other components of pain management.
