Behavioral medicine is an important and necessary component in the interdisciplinary treatment of chronic pain. This webinar is designed for psychologists who have some experience with the treatment of complex, medically involved patients. The focus is on reviewing the medical and psychological techniques used in the management and treatment of chronic pain. Special emphasis will be placed on complex and challenging syndromes such as the patients considering surgical and interventional pain treatments, patients being managed long-term with opiates, and medically complex patients. Two cases will be presented and participants will be encouraged to participate in discussion and problem-solving. The complexity of treating chronic pain also comes with the real potential of provider burnout and so this presentation will address caregiver burnout and ways to manage it.
