Psychological/Behavioral Strategies for Pain Management: Tools for PCPs to Use in a 20 Minute Visit

Many primary care providers who work with chronic pain patients have limited or no access to psychological resources to help patients struggling with daily pain. This webinar will include psychological and behavioral techniques PCPs can use during their brief visits with patients to facilitate coping strategies and adherence. Case examples and techniques to help manage provider burn out will also be covered.
