Pain Screening in Refugee Survivors of Torture


Brief description of study

The investigators are evaluating refugee torture survivors who are receiving services at the Weill Cornell Center for Human Rights. There are two research questions in this study: if the current standard of care results in the under or missed diagnosis of pain and pain syndromes, and if a validated pain screening tool can supplement the current standard protocol used in the assessments of survivors of torture.
