Effective Strategies for Prevention, Evaluation, and Management of the Opioid Use Disorder
In this 4-8 hour seminar, doctors will learn an evidence-based approach using present day neurophysiological principles for pain management including:
- manipulative techniques
- therapeutic exercise activities
- the use of acupuncture (needle and non-needle techniques)
- pulsed electromagnetic field therapy
- manual soft tissue methods.
Attendees will learn from new research studies, with an emphasis on the treatment of chronic pain including important information on four pillars of lifestyle management and their relation to chronic pain.
Successful chronic pain treatment includes a comprehensive, biopsychosocial understanding with an integrative care approach. Acceptable treatment guidelines will be presented for clinically appropriate and medically necessary treatment plans. Complicating factors are discussed as it relates to treatment planning for chronic pain management. Patient engagement through shared decision-making including self-care is taught as an active part and, in many cases, the most important aspect of care management.
This seminar will also cover the importance of clinical documentation, the use of care summaries through an EHR, and interprofessional relationship building leading to collaboration around patient-centered care.
Attendees will have the opportunity to present and learn from colleague-generated clinical pearls in a collaborative learning classroom.
