Summary:

Pain Management is a multifaceted challenge. We use pain scales to try to understand how another person may feel or describe pain. This webinar will begin with an introduction to the importance of appropriately  assessing acute and chronic pain as patients experience it as well as the importance of assessing the effect of pain on function. The differences between medication tolerance, dependency, pseudoaddiction, and substance use disorder will be explored. Are opioids always the answer? Are complementary pain therapies just “nice to try” interventions or underappreciated effective remedies? Join an interesting discussion about managing pain with an overview of a multimodal approach with pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic interventions which will help to answer those questions.

Objectives:

The goal of this presentation is to discuss multimodal pain management within a context of pain scales, level of patient function, and complementary therapies. Upon completion of the webinar, learners will be able to:
  • Describe the relationship between how patients experience pain and assessing pain with intensity scales
  • Explain the importance of assessing the level of patient function with regard to pain being experienced
  • Explain the differences between medication tolerance, dependence, and substance use disorder
  • Identify characteristics of a multimodal and team approach to pain management
  • Identify nonopioid analgesic medications and nonpharmacologic interventions for pain management
