Upcoming interview with Dr. J. David Cassidy. Dr. Cassidy is a Professor of Epidemiology and Health Policy at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health at the University of Toronto. His research focus is injury epidemiology, neurotrauma, musculoskeletal disorders and evidence-based health care and policy. He has published over 300 research papers and chapters in textbooks over his career, including papers in the New England Journal of Medicine, the British Medical Journal, Annals of Internal Medicine, JAMA Psychiatry and the Archives of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine to name a few. He is particularly interested in the psychosocial determinants of injury recovery and long-term consequences of injury. Please comment below if you have any questions for us during the interview. I might choose some of them for our conversation.

    Hi Dr. Cassidy!
    Question: what do you find to be the one or two most likely factors causing slow or failure of patient recovery from most injuries and surgeries? And what is your opinion on the impact of pain reducing medications on that fear factor? Clinical observation in my practice over the past fifteen years has supported the plethora of articles I’ve read describing the impact of ‘fear of pain/discomfort’ to be the most common reason for stifled recovery.
    Thank you!!
