Better Support Needed for Patients in Chronic Pain

Thank you for publishing the summer 2018 Kansas City Medicine edition highlighting the impact of the opioid crisis. The Center for Practical Bioethics recognizes that the lives ravaged by addiction and the lives destroyed by pain are both major U.S. health concerns. The moral obligation to serve and protect the interests of persons whose lives are devastated by the misuse of opioid medications weighs heavily upon society as do our duties to serve the millions of those who live with debilitating chronic pain.

MetroCare and WYJOCare

Physicians Needed to Provide Specialty Care to Uninsured Patients Through Metro Care, Wy Jo Care. Programs coordinate care; each physician determines the number of cases to accept. Nearly 175,000 people in the Kansas City metropolitan area—8.4 percent—are uninsured.1 That means when a medical crisis arises, they are likely to have to delay care or take on potentially crippling debt. You can help meet this need by donating a few hours a month to the Medical Society’s charitable care programs, Metro Care in Missouri and Wy Jo Care in Kansas. Both programs operate under the Kansas City Medical Society Foundation.
