Moving beyond the question of "malingering"

By comprehensively covering the evidence and systematically working through the arguments, Gill convinced me there is no reliable way for practitioners like myself to identify malingering in chronic pain patients AND that this should not be my role anyway. I feel freed up to believe, and do my best for, those who are in pain and suffering.
