No reviews exist that synthesize evidence around ethnic concordance, pain assessment, and pain treatment outcomes. In this chapter, we begin by presenting a theoretical discussion of why patient-provider ethnic concordance may matter in the specific context of pain outcomes and then review the extant literature to understand whether ethnic concordance finds support in the published literature as a predictor of pain treatment outcomes. We conclude with a discussion of methodological, pragmatic, as well as normative considerations in applying the concept of ethnic concordance in health care.
