Target Audience
Practice teams including physicians, nurses, nurse care managers, medical assistants, and other team members.

Program Description
Dr. Matthew Smith and Dr. Lisa Uebelacker will address the challenges of managing patients with chronic pain. In light of evidence highlighting risks of chronic opioid management including hyperalgesia and accidental death, non-pharmacologic methods will be emphasized. They will discuss ways in which medical providers can integrate basic techniques from behavioral medicine into their own practice. The goal of these techniques is to engage patients as agents of change in their own health.
