Over the past decade there are very few topics in the delivery of health care that have attracted more attention than the continuing dilemma of complex case management involving pain which spans all continents, socioeconomic standings and ethnicities.
It permeates into each facet and vocation of healthcare delivery with the greatest burden placed on the shoulders of primary care providers. A new emphasis on patient-centered, holistic and team based care which has proven to increase patient outcomes, requires preparation and skill development among providers and especially among learners in the health care system.
Hosted by PCOM Georgia located in Suwanee, Georgia, the Interprofessional Approach to Complex Case Management conference will explore complex case management from the interdisciplinary team’s perspective. This program will emphasize the importance of communication in delivering patient centered care. A panel discussion will incorporate interprofessional collaboration strategies in assessment and treatment as it relates to complex cases involving pain.
Case-based learning will be followed by implementation of these strategies as interprofessional teams collaborate in a live clinical standardized patient scenario that will culminate with a panel summary discussion about the management of these complex patients, thus emphasizing the critical importance of an using an interprofessional approach, interpersonal communication skills, systems based practice and dedication to life-long learning.
The goal of this CME program is to demonstrate and emphasize the importance of interprofessional collaboration and communication in delivering patient-centered care in the assessment and treatment of complex cases involving pain. Physicians and other healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of these complex cases will understand the roles various disciplines play and the importance of implementing interprofessional strategies in clinical practice which has proven to increase patient outcomes.
