King of Prussia, PA – MedRisk recently announced that it will host a 90-minute webinar presented by Chris Main, PhD, an international expert in the biopsychosocial approach to pain management. The “Psychologically Informed Practice in the Occupational Health Environment” will start at 10 a.m. Eastern on October 27.
“This is a rare opportunity to hear from one of the world’s foremost authorities on the biopsychosocial approach to managing pain in the workplace,” said Mary O’Donoghue, MedRisk’s Chief Clinical and Product Officer.
Dr. Main will describe the use of a psychologically informed practice in physical rehabilitation and secondary prevention. Designed for workers’ compensation medical directors, nurses, claim managers, and physical therapists, the webinar shares study results and examines the psychosocial context of work disability, re-engagement in work, and patient-centric care.

He helped develop the first pain management program specifically for low back pain in the U.K. He serves on Physical Therapy’s editorial board and has authored or coauthored more than 200 books, monographs, reports, and articles.
