Scientific Questions Being Studied
We will look at Opioid Use and Back Pain.
We will look to see if opioid use can be reduced with specific interventions, and who is most at risk for being prescribed opioids.
We are looking at the available data to try to discern risk factors for opioid use and back pain. The broadness of the study is mostly due to our naivety of the interface, data, and capabilities of everything in "All of Us."
- Disease Focused Research (Back Pain and Opioid Use)
We will use the available cohorts within the All of Us study group to analyze the risk factors for back pain and opioid use.
Regarding determination of "at risk" groups, social determinants of health, and analyses of such data, we are limited by the available data within "All of Us," and will likely need to utilize more granular data at our institution for comparison. At this time, the "All of Us" network is very young with limited numbers; however, we believe the numbers will increase and allow for associations to be found on multi-variate analysis--although limited by the lack of granularity. Hopefully, in the end, this research will aid us in finding answers to risk factors for opioid use and back pain. Eventually, we could compare the more granular results from our local data set in a primarily minority and low income area to the general data provided from "All of Us."
We hope to find groups at risk for opioid use or back pain and intervene earlier.
There are limited data on social determinants of health in All of Us; however we are at an institution that is working towards improving data collection on social determinants of health and making interventions on it. Eventually, we could compare the cohorts; however, we cannot claim that the "All of Us" network has enough participants at this time to make any generalizable associations.
