AMA Launches “Share Your Story” Campaign To Document Barriers To Care

The American Medical Association (AMA) is launching a new digital tool kit as part of its ongoing efforts to improve access to high-quality treatment for patients seeking multidisciplinary pain care and for a substance use disorder. The tool kit will be used by the AMA and the nation’s medical societies to urge physicians to upload stories about their patients who encounter obstacles when seeking care for pain and/or a substance use disorder.

The “Share Your Story” campaign is part of the AMA’s work to end the opioid epidemic and is designed to highlight physician efforts as well as urge payers and policymakers to improve access to treatment.
