Evidence-based Nonpharmacologic Strategies for Comprehensive Pain Care

Fee: $75 / MU Faculty, Preceptors and Students $35

This program will provide 3 contact hours for nurses or 3 clinical social work continuing education units. Licensed professional counseling accreditation recognizes either of these professional bodies and will accept these credit hours.

Program Description

This presentation will outline the societal impact of pain and the importance of pain as a major healthcare issue. The opioid crisis has intensified the need to explore integrative approaches to pain management. Yet, in spite of this growing concern, the evidence-base for nonpharmacologic pain care is not widely disseminated. This course will outline the role of evidence-based strategies as options in comprehensive pain care. The instructor will cover modalities shown to be effective and how they can be integrated for common pain conditions.

Topics will include:

  • The impact of pain & the current status of pain management
  • The need for interdisciplinary and multimodal care
  • Process and success in changing policy for comprehensive pain care
  • An overview of effective evidence-based options for comprehensive pain management
  • Best practices and considerations for when referring to healthcare providers
