Prior to going to the emergency department, this 55-year-old woman had fallen backwards at home. She has a history of osteoporosis, schizophrenia, and Hepatitis C. In our clinic she presents with ongoing and severe buttock pain, severe burning leg pain, and indicates increased incontinence. Do the x-rays taken during her E/R visit hold a key to her treatment?

An ongoing conversation around the country is needed regarding the interaction between healthcare professionals and those in charge of monitoring (the DEA, the medical boards, the police, hospital peer groups). The Share the Risk model is an ongoing action plan in the spirit of cooperation between all professionals interested in appropriate medical care balanced with law enforcement needs.

This article is an attempt to show that it is possible to develop a more constructive strategy between all professionals dealing with this complex and expanding pain population.
