Time Efficient Management of Pain in the Office (TEMPO)

Wednesday 25 October 8.30 am – 3.30 pm

General Practitioners can no longer rely on a quick fix for the complex problem of chronic non-terminal pain. Long-term opioids may worsen pain and function, and pharmaceuticals may be frustratingly ineffective. The new paradigm of care is multidisciplinary and multimodal which often implies referrals to inaccessible tertiary clinics.

But can time-poor GPs provide such care? A multidisciplinary team has developed a programme to introduce the latest research and help you become confident providing a range of basic, concise non-pharmaceutical interventions. These cover areas including: patient education, assessment, deprescribing opioids, activity planning, cognitive and psychological care, insomnia, nutrition and addictions. Familiarity with these strategies for chronic non-terminal pain may potentially be a useful addition to your repertoire of chronic disease management strategies.
