Webinar description: A standardized pain management plan was developed to reduce variation in prescribing, reduce opioid consumption, and individualize pain treatment while maintaining regulatory excellence. The plan included a foundation of scheduled non-opioid analgesics, medications for neuropathic pain and opioid effect maximization, consistent use of integrative therapies, and a plan for breakthrough pain based on the patient’s ability to achieve therapeutic activity goals (TAG). TAG considers the patient’s baseline function, treatment goals, activities of daily living, and ability to rest and was used to evaluate need for PRN analgesics, set and reach treatment goals, and involve patients and caregivers in treatment.

Educational objectives:

  • Identify the fundamental concepts of person-centered, multi-modal pain management.
  • Describe the components included in development of therapeutic activity goals.
  • Discuss the step approach to pain management based on patient function.
