Module 08 - Pain Management - Assessing and Treating Persistent Nonmalignant Pain: Common Persistent Pain Conditions
Traditionally, pain has been treated as a symptom, which is appropriate in the context of acute injury or disease. However, once the injury has healed or the disease has subsided, patients may be left with persistent pain. This CME program will address nonmalignant or “noncancer” pain—a group of complex disorders that may be related to a specific disease process; occur following injury to bone, joint, soft tissue, viscera, or nerve; or result from poorly understood psychological practices.
