ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

This workshop is designed to provide essential medical knowledge and psychological skills to help patients become the "team leader" of their own chronic pain management.  Presenters are physicians and psychologists with specific, extensive experience with the full spectrum of chronic pain conditions and current interventions.  Clinicians can expect to complete the workshop feeling more confident in their ability to communicate with other providers, patients and families about pain conditions, and to teach patients cognitive and behavioral strategies in their own management of symptoms.

Learning objectives             

After completion of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Summarize types of chronic pain conditions and explain why pain can persist long after injuries and surgical procedures “heal.
  • Recognize the conscious and subconscious secondary gain issues that motivate patients to seek treatment.
  • Describe the various medications, implantable therapies, and wholistic interventions currently in use for managing chronic pain.
  • Apply principles of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in your practice with pain patients.
  • Recognize “high risk” characteristics and drug seeking behaviors in challenging cases. 
  • Utilize DIRE screening to help guide ethical collaborative treatment suggestions with physicians.
  • Help families navigate difficult discussions and conflicting opinions about pain management treatments
  • Describe the ethical dilemmas we face in patient care and treatment selection with pain management. 
  • Recognize and challenge our own biases about pain and disability when working with chronic pain patients.
