“Psychological Management of Pain” by Dr Margaret Tadros & Dr Bradley Wood
This is the second part of a three-part series on Pain Management. The presentation will outline the rationale underlying a psychological approach to pain management and how to determine if a patient is likely to benefit from a psychological approach. It will cover guidelines for how to decide what type of psychological management would be appropriate for the patient and how to talk to the patient about referral to a psychologist, including tips for how to address the most common issues that patients raise during this discussion. It will outline the various aspects and components of a typical psychological approach to pain and provide tips on what to expect from a pain psychologist as the treating doctor.
