THE ROLE OF PSYCHOLOGY IN ADDRESSING PAIN AND RELATED OPIOID DEPENDENCE
FRIDAY, April 23, 2021 | 10 a.m. central – 5:00 P.M.
VIRTUAL LIVE ZOOM Conference - (Registration required)
Eligible for Continuing Education: 6 Credits
Chronic pain affects approximately 20% of the U.S. adult population. Our nation's opioid epidemic has spurred interest in nonpharmacologic options to assist with managing pain. Psychological interventions for chronic pain can reduce or eliminate the use of prescription opioids and improve patient functioning and recovery, and the U.S. Pain Management Best Practices Inter-Agency Task Force has recommended educating patients, clinicians, and the public about the role of psychological pain management interventions and expanding access to these services.
The Psychological Pain Management Training developed by the American Psychological Association, will help address this gap by building the nonpharmacological pain management workforce in Oklahoma. In this training nationally recognized experts will provide participants with a strong understanding of the biopsychosocial nature of pain and the use of psychological and behavioral approaches to address chronic pain in adult populations.
