Non-Pharmacologic Approaches to Pain Management

October 10, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT

Join the Telligen QIN-QIO and the American Medical Association (AMA) the second Wednesday of each month through December, 2018 for a deeper dive into safely managing patients with opioids.

Description: When patients are diagnosed with a condition, a primary concern is often the presence of discomfort or pain. While some conditions require medication to treat a patient’s pain, there can also be non-pharmacologic approaches to pain management that can be utilized in conjunction or in place of the medication. In today’s webinar, methods for pain management specifically for patients with chronic medical conditions (i.e. diabetes, cardiac health issues) will be explored. Behavioral, cognitive and physical therapies, including hypnosis, guided imagery, diaphragmatic breathing, etc. will be discussed. The content will also include an overview of the legislative/state-based perspective of pain management approaches.

Presenters:

  • Daniel Blaney-Koen, JD, (AMA)
  • Steve DeToy – Rhode Island Medical Society
