Please give a warm welcome to Dr Erin E. Krebs.
Erin E. Krebs, MD, MPH is an internal medicine physician and health services researcher at the Minneapolis Veterans Affairs (VA) Center for Care Delivery and Outcomes Research and University of Minnesota Medical School.
Her research addresses clinical questions related to chronic pain and opioid analgesics, informed by her practice as a primary care physician. She was principal investigator of the landmark Strategies for Prescribing Analgesics Comparative Effectiveness (SPACE) trial that compared long-term pain, function, and quality of life outcomes of opioid therapy versus non-opioid medication therapy for chronic back or osteoarthritis pain.
Her current research focuses on opioid tapering outcomes and care of patients prescribed long-term opioid therapy for chronic pain. Dr Krebs completed medical school and internal medicine residency at the University of Minnesota and received her MPH from the University of North Carolina, where she was a Robert Wood Johnson (RWJ) Foundation Clinical Scholar.
