Today’s issue of WorkCompRecap features Out Front Ideas’ announcement of its next free webinar, noting that the workers’ compensation community has been working for years to address the appropriate use of opioid medications for pain, and it’s time to reevaluate approaches pain management.
The webinar will explore the question: as we move away from opioids as the first choice of treatment, what are the alternatives for treating chronic pain? Pain is very subjective, and every individual responds to it differently, so there is no “one-size-fits-all” solution, which means the answers can be complex and varied. A panel discussion will cover topics like the influential role psychology plays in pain management; how to define pre-pain treatment, and how it can aid injured worker recovery; available alternative pain management techniques that can replace opioids; and the importance of patient engagement in chronic pain management.
