Pain is present in two thirds of depressed primary care patients begun on antidepressant therapy, and the severity of pain is a strong predictor of poor depression and health-related quality of life outcomes at 3 months.
Development and Initial Validation of the PEG, a Three-item Scale Assessing Pain Intensity and Interference
Strong initial evidence for reliability, construct validity, and responsiveness of the PEG among primary care and other ambulatory clinic patients is provided and it may be a practical and useful tool to improve assessment and monitoring of chronic pain in primary care.

The added morbidity of depression and anxiety with chronic pain is strongly associated with more severe pain, greater disability, and poorer health-related quality of life.
Reciprocal relationship between pain and depression: a 12-month longitudinal analysis in primary care.
The patient-provider relationship in chronic pain care: providers' perspectives.
Improving PCPs' patient-centered communication skills-including demonstrating empathy and encouraging shared decision-making-holds promise for alleviating some of the strain and burden reported by providers, ultimately leading to improved patient care.
Patient Health Questionnaire Anxiety and Depression Scale: Initial Validation in Three Clinical Trials
The PHQ-ADS may be a reliable and valid composite measure of depression and anxiety which, if validated in other populations, could be useful as a single measure for jointly assessing two of the most common psychological conditions in clinical practice and research.
Pharmacotherapy of chronic pain: a synthesis of recommendations from systematic reviews.
Effect of Opioid vs Nonopioid Medications on Pain-Related Function in Patients With Chronic Back Pain or Hip or Knee Osteoarthritis Pain: The SPACE Randomized Clinical Trial
Treatment with opioids was not superior to treatment with nonopioid medications for improving pain-related function over 12 months and results do not support initiation of opioid therapy for moderate to severe chronic back pain or hip or knee osteoarthritis pain.
Optimized antidepressant therapy and pain self-management in primary care patients with depression and musculoskeletal pain: a randomized controlled trial.
Optimized antidepressant therapy followed by a pain self-management program resulted in substantial improvement in depression as well as moderate reductions in pain severity and disability.
