Pain Is Inevitable, Suffering is Optional

On-demand Webinar

While the current reimbursement system limits the availability of multidisciplinary approaches to pain involving psychologists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, and medical providers. Family physicians can play an important role in educating and helping patients best manage chronic pain. During this interactive session we will discuss the modern biopsychosocial models of pain, including how language, and we will review the evidence for pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic treatments of chronic pain.

Intended Audience
