Pain affects individuals of all ages and backgrounds. The United States
Department of Health and Human services declared that "patients with
acute and chronic pain in the United States face a crisis because of
significant challenges in obtaining adequate care, resulting in profound
physical, emotional, and societal costs" (2019). This webinar will
provide OT practitioners with a better understanding to the
biopsychosocial model for pain as well as the biological, psychological,
and sociological factors that contribute to the development of pain. This course is targeted at occupational therapy assistants and occupational therapists. This course uses the following instructional methods: recorded audio, visual aides (ie slides and videos), discussion board, transcription/closed captioning, guided note taking, and learning, and practice opportunities.
Content disclosure: This course does not exclusively focus on any specific product or service.
Participants will identify the psychological, biological, and social factors that can influence the development of pain and its persistence.
Participants will be able to describe the impact pain can have on occupational performance.
Participants will explain 3 evidence-based occupational therapy interventions that could be used in a biopsychosocial approach to treat individuals with pain.
