This presentation will provide a timeline from investigating chronic pain issues within a primary care clinic through the launching of evidence-based interventions and treatments. Our goal is to help other teams initiate chronic pain identification, management, and therapy from a systemic model taking a step by step approach. This model allows clinics to devote the resources they have available to launch what is reasonable based on time, resources, and training. This presentation includes specific tools, workflow discussion, templates, and our Mindfulness-Based Pain Therapy model.
- Identify a step by step process to implement chronic pain management workflows and evidence-based protocols to help patients decrease or discontinue the use of opioid medications.
- Identify resources available to primary care providers to assist clinics in launching effective protocols to improve management and safety for patients who are prescribed opioid medications, as well as identify non-narcotic resources.
- Will have an introductory knowledge of Mindfulness-Based Pain Therapy as an effective treatment modality within an integrated care setting.
