Brain vs. Pain: Model for Integrative Care in Distributed Networks

Wausau, WI US
September 7, 2019

Integrated Care in Distributed Provider Networks

Target Audience

Medical personnel, Psychologists and Physical Therapists

Learning Objectives

1.  Share current pain science concepts and treatment approaches, but also facilitate direct interaction between participants to enhance the carrying capacity of collaborative networks among us all.

2.  Share a model for addressing the vast psychosocial need that comes in the door with pain patients, and discuss how to build natural, community-based supports that meet much of that need so that consumers are better informed and providers can more readily apply the interventions at their disposal.

3.  This course seeks to bring together members of those key disciplines regionally, to offer a shared, layered approach to cares for this population, with the aim of bridging the inherent gaps so prevalant in working across distributed networks of providers.
