Utilizing Complex Care Case Managers in a Pain Clinic Setting

It's a Bird! It's a Plane! No, it's a Case Manager!

Stanford Pain Management Clinic was one of the first programs of its kind to recognize that having complex care case managers could have a significant impact on care coordination for patients, resulting in more successful and positive patient outcomes. In the pain clinic, complex care case managers act as liaisons between patients, pain management providers, and other members of the multidisciplinary care team (both within a practice/hospital and in collaboration with community organizations) to ensure clear communication and coordination of care. This course will explore all the ingredients combining case managers and optimal pain management. (Recorded at PAINWeek 2018)
