About the webinar: Chronic pain syndrome affects nearly 30% of the population and causes disability for nearly 8%. This can include headache, back, neck, extremity, and abdominal pain. Multidisciplinary approaches can address multiple factors that contribute to pain. This treatment requires multiple specialists (including medical and mental health professionals and physical/occupational therapists) to provide care in a coordinated process. Understanding when to utilize this approach as well as how to locate or create such programs is critical to improve the outcomes for our chronic pain patients.

Educational objectives:

  • Define Chronic pain syndrome
  • Assess when chronic opioids may contribute to chronic pain versus benefit
  • Review the prevalence, chronicity, and impact of chronic pain syndrome
  • Define biopsychosocial model of pain treatment versus medico pharmacologic approach
  • Describe the role of the neurologist in a biopsychosocial model of pain treatment
  • Recognize the benefits of chronic pain rehabilitation
