Dueling Diagnoses – Complicated Pain and Addiction: Identifying & Unlocking the Perpetuating Factors & Treatment Strategies
Tuesday, June 25, 2013 1:00 PM EDT, 12:00 PM CDT
“Chronic pain” can imply a hopeless and permanent condition. “Complicated pain” more accurately conveys the nature of this multi-factorial condition, and hints at the integrative strategy that is required to successfully treat it. In this webinar, Dr. Jerry Lerner, Chief of Pain Medicine at Sierra Tucson, will explore the underlying factors that can perpetuate unresolved pain.
Dr. Lerner will discuss both the proven and emerging treatment strategies that can help resolve the factors that contribute to poor outcomes in these patients. He will further identify the options and risks of treating dual diagnosis chronic pain with substance abuse/addiction.
- Differentiate between the concepts of chronic versus complicated pain.
- Identify the perpetuating factors that interfere with the natural resolution of pain.
- Describe effective treatment strategies for each of the identified perpetuating factors.
- Explain the options and risks of treating duel diagnoses of pain and substance abuse/addiction.
