There is a growing body of evidence to show that various forms of traditional, complementary, and alternative medicine (CAM) can be beneficial to patients with pain. At this same time, the medical community is under considerable legal and societal pressure to prescribe fewer opioids and other narcotics that can lead to addiction. The need for clinicians to learn more about, and feel comfortable using alternate methods for treating chronic pain, is as important as ever before.

Through this curriculum, we hope to create and expand awareness of evidence-based, best-practices in CAM that can be easily and successfully incorporated in your clinical setting. Topics will include:

  • When to suggest alternative practices
  • Overview of various clinical modalities
  • When to refer
  • Working collaboratively with other providers
  • Creating channels of communication
  • Sharing outcomes data
