Challenges and Opportunities During Transitions in Care: A New Provider’s Experience with Chronic Pain Management

July 19, 2017 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm

ET

Presenter(s): Adam J. Gordon, MD, MPH, FACP, DFASAM and Timothy J. Sowicz, PhD, CRNP

About the webinar: Transitions in care present challenges and opportunities for both patients and health care providers in the management of chronic, non-malignant pain. These challenges may be compounded if the patient previously displayed aberrant behaviors around opioid use.

While this information may guide management decisions, the importance of building a new, trusting professional relationship is necessary to ensure that the patient’s concerns are addressed appropriately.

This presentation will utilize case studies to discuss the challenges and opportunities a new provider faces in assuming the care of someone with chronic, non-malignant pain particularly as it relates to concerns about the use of opioids and the presence of opioid use disorder. Participants will be encouraged to explore the case from the perspective of the patient and brainstorm ideas on how to improve the professional relationship while ensuring safe care is provided.

Educational objectives: 

  • State challenges and opportunities associated with transitions in care for both patients and health care providers generally and those specifically related to the use of opioids chronically
  • Discuss non-pharmacologic and pharmacologic treatments for the management of chronic, non-malignant pain
  • Discuss criteria for diagnosing opioid use disorder
  • Discuss the experiencing transitions middle-range theory as a framework for understanding transitions between patients and their health care providers
