Multidimensional Care of Chronic Pain: Reducing Reliance on Opioids for Relief
June 26, 2013
 

This webinar will explore a multidimensional clinical approach to the treatment of chronic pain (and co-occurring mental health and substance disorders) that can be implemented in both primary and specialty practices.  Readily available evidence-based options for active patient engagement in chronic pain treatment will be explored and tips on identifying clinical and support resources in community based settings will be offered.  The appropriate role of opioid analgesics in the context of active pain recovery also will be reviewed.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the chronic disease model of pain and the role of self-management in effective treatment.
  • Be able to guide patients with complex chronic pain into an active role in pain recovery.
  • Appropriately integrate opioids when needed into a multidimensional treatment plan
