Program Description

The goal of this program is to provide comprehensive pain education to healthcare professionals, including pain assessment, non-pharmacological, pharmacological and interventional approaches, and addiction and overdose prevention. A multidisciplinary team comprised of physicians, addiction medicine and behavioral health providers, chiropractors, and physical therapists models a team approach to pain assessment and management. Sessions are devoted to evidence-based approaches to pain management, and include a didactic and one to two case presentations. As time permits, the team offers "curbside consultations" for participants' pressing questions.

Target Audience

Physicians, advanced practice providers, psychologists, counselors, social workers, pharmacists, physical therapists, acupuncturists, chiropractors, and nurses.
