Managing Acute & High-Impact Chronic Pain through Multidisciplinary Care
A stakeholders meeting to improve care and optimize patient outcomes

The fundamentals of multidisciplinary pain management have been the gold standard for pain care and have been promoted by AAPM since it was established over 30 years ago with a mission of “advancing the comprehensive care of patients with pain through promotion of the best clinical practices, research, advocacy, and continuing medical education.”

For 2018, AAPM President Steven Stanos, DO, in collaboration with the Program Committee, has selected Managing Acute & High-Impact Chronic Pain through Multidisciplinary Care as the AAPM 34th Annual Meeting theme.

The meeting will be designed to provide key stakeholders – especially physicians and members of their treatment teams – with the skills and knowledge necessary to more fully incorporate multidisciplinary care into their practices in order to improve care and optimize patient outcomes. Payer and other stakeholders’ perspectives will also be included.

The meeting will highlight critical components of multidisciplinary care, including:

  • Team based interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary, and stepped care models of treatment;
  • Integrating state of the art interventional procedures within a comprehensive pain management treatment plan (i.e. spine injection procedures, peripheral nerve injections, neuromodulation);
  • Physical and occupational therapies;
  • Non-opioid and opioid pharmacotherapy, including addiction and substance abuse treatment;
  • Behavioral health interventions (i.e. cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness based stress reduction);
  • Exercise, patient education, and wellness regimens;
  • Musculoskeletal care (i.e. soft tissue injections, ultrasound guided procedures);
  • Comprehensive physical and psychosocial patient assessments; and
  • Practice guidelines and updates on the National Pain Strategy.
