Multidisciplinary Pain Management

Practicing in the Community Setting

Increasingly widespread acceptance of the biopsychosocial model in chronic pain management, along with the relatively modest performance of monotherapies in clinical trials, has led to increased research into the effectiveness of multidisciplinary care. The greatest challenges to practicing multidisciplinary pain management in the community setting include cost, access, provider education, and patient acceptance. This presentation will explore the importance of multidisciplinary pain management, provide easy access to resources, and empower the community provider to practice comprehensive pain management for improved outcomes with some of their most challenging of patients.
