Pain Management: Evidence-based Approach to Treating Acute & Chronic Pain Course Description

The program will present an accepted systematic approach to the diagnostic evaluation and treatment of “Spinal Pain”, including low pain. When patients develop and report chronic pain, the management and treatment should take into consideration regulatory and professional standards. Addressing current approaches to managing chronic pain is benefited by an understanding of the epidemiology of chronic pain. There needs to be an effective approach to managing acute and chronic pain, especially with respect to an injured worker and returning them back to full capacity employment. Outcomes measures of a pain management program assure and maintain success with returning an injured worker to full time employment. Traditional pain management approaches have limitations that can be overcome through alternative approaches in managing pain on an acute and chronic basis.

Objectives

    By the end of this workshop, participants should be better able to:
  • Discuss a systematic approach to pain evaluation.
  • Develop an evidence-based approach to pain management.
  • Identify and implement the most effective pain management interventions.
  • Consider various risk management issues regarding pain management.
  • Discuss pain management intervention directed at improving return to work (RTW).
  • Implement performance improvement processes for achieving measurable outcomes in returning the injured back to work.
  • Consider evidence-based alternative pain interventions.

Pain Management November 18, 2014
Reviewer: Nancy Johnson-Rose from Pella, IA United States  
Was very disappointed that absolutely nothing was presented about drug dosages, drug equivalents, detoxing, etc.  Most of the participants were already taking care of chronic pain patients and needed help with the difficult situations, not the basics. Statistics, graphs, etc. were grossly out of date.

Picked up a few pearls but overall material seemed a bit dated
