Awkward Conversations: Managing Patients with Chronic Pain
The management of chronic pain can be challenging given the complex psychosocial issues that are often present in this patient population. Interactions can be further complicated when patient and physician expectations and goals are not in alignment. As such, navigating conversations with patients with chronic pain can be difficult. This presentation will review essential elements that should be incorporated into any dialogue with patients with chronic pain. There will be simulated patient scenarios with role playing and heavy audience participation.
