This chapter draws on all three chapters in the second section of the book (Chapter 5–7) to highlight general points about defining chronic pain as a public health issue. Topics discussed include a core definition of chronic pain for public health, expanding the concept of time for chronic pain, expanding the concept of pain, and moving towards measuring risk and defining chronic pain propensity in the whole population.
