Application of Evidence-based Interventions for Chronic Pain Conditions in Primary Care

Arlington, VA US
August 5, 2014


 

IBHC Sustainment Training: August 2014

 


Date/Time:  August 5, 2014; 2-3:30 p.m. (EDT)
 

Nearly 100 million adult Americans suffer from chronic pain. This total is greater than the combined number of individuals with diabetes, heart disease and cancer. Chronic pain conditions most commonly reported in primary care include persistent lower back pain, headaches, arthritis and fibromyalgia. Traditional biomedical interventions for chronic pain in primary care, such as opioid medications or surgical consults, may lack long-term benefit or subject patients to unnecessary risk, which lead to the need for alternative approaches. Fortunately, the biopsychosocial model is now widely accepted as the most empirical approach to the understanding and treatment of chronic pain disorders from a number of disciplines.  This approach honors the complex and dynamic nature of chronic pain, particularly in how it affects one’s quality of life. 

The biopsychosocial conceptualization of chronic pain further led to an array of multimodal interventions toward decreasing functional impairment, and additional research studies on the usefulness of such interventions. Cognitive-behavioral therapies and interventions are among the most common and efficacious in chronic pain management offered by behavioral health care providers.  Teaching behavioral strategies like relaxation techniques, as well as addressing problematic thinking patterns such as catastrophizing, can positively impact a person’s experience with chronic pain.  This second webinar will build upon the important foundations from the first webinar “Chronic Pain in Primary Care” and provide additional guidelines and resources to help internal behavior health consultants address this common concern in the primary care setting.
 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  • Apply evidence-based interventions to address and potentially co-manage patients diagnosed with chronic pain conditions in primary care
  • Help primary care managers identify patients diagnosed with chronic pain conditions who would benefit from behavioral health consultation in primary care
  • Evaluate the effectiveness of behavioral interventions for chronic pain conditions and modify accordingly to add value to the primary care setting (individual vs. group)
