Basics of Chronic Pain Management

Essentials for the Non-Pain Management Specialist


A Growing Dilemma

Nearly 50 million Americans suffer from chronic pain. As the population ages, that number is likely to increase. Many patients seek help not from pain specialists, but from primary care physicians or other healthcare professionals.

At the same time, opioid abuse is at epidemic levels, leading regulators and law enforcement to place increased scrutiny on the prescribing of pain medications. Against this backdrop, it is critical that all prescribers have a solid foundation in the basics of chronic pain management.

Basics of Chronic Pain Management is a one-day seminar that will help you treat this growing population of patients with safety and confidence. Offered in Denver, Colorado, this course is intended for those who are not pain management specialists.

Topics of Discussion

  • The epidemiology and pathophysiology of chronic pain
  • Common conditions and best approaches to management
  • Pharmacologic treatment, including analgesics (opioids and non-opioids) and adjunctive medications
  • Non-pharmacologic treatment, including complementary and alternative therapies
  • Interventional pain management: indications and options

Like all of our courses, this program is designed to fulfill licensing board or credentialing requirements for remedial education, but is also appropriate for those who simply wish to improve their skills in this critical area.

Great clinical pearls…Good emphasis on multi-modal approach yet very good medication-use discussion
