Description of CME Course
Chronic pain affects over 50 million people in the US and 1.5 billion world-wide. This is the second of a series of 9 interactive modules on Pain Management; 7 didactic modules and 2 modules of case studies. Using current evidence-based approaches, these modules address pain assessment, diagnostic differentials, treatment plans, and patient-centered communication. Modules can be viewed independent of each other. This module 2 offers physicians tools to assess pain, function, and mood for patients with chronic pain using a biopsychosocial approach that integrates multiple perspectives to better understand how each domain – biological or physical, psychological or mental, and social – contributes to an individual’s pain experience.
