Acute Musculoskeletal Pain Management: Measures to Mitigate Chronicity (CME/CE)


10 November 2021


12:00 AM11:59 PM

This webinar is a masterclass in pain and management for frontline health care practitioners (HCPs) with a review of the burden, its effect, and the role of OTC self-medication

This virtual event will discuss how balancing pain and patient safety following musculoskeletal trauma and injury is possible when utilizing a multimodal approach that includes cognitive, physical, and pharmaceutical strategies.

Topics Include:

  • How best to manage acute pain
  • Identifying best practice models for reference
  • Examinations of patient experiences seeking diagnosis and treatment of acute pain with pharmacists and GPs

Specifically, the sessions will examine principles and dimensions in an initial consultation for better acute management and what consultations could look like from simple first assessment and approaches to more complex treatment plans.

Sessions Will Detail:

  • How frontline health care professionals can enhance the importance of early acute treatment and help patients implement lifestyle changes to better self-manage their pain.
  • Advice on how HCPs can best conduct their first pain consultation that reflects a patient-centric approach considering limitations like time.
  • Strategies of how to quickly possess knowledge on the dimensions of the patient background, lifestyle choices, and treatment tried with success or failure before deciding on the appropriate plan of action will also be covered.
  • Education and training in consultation/communication skills (PCP communication), which allow empathetic conversations between frontline HCPs and patients with acute pain to instigate change and better self-management of acute musculoskeletal pain.
