Training Title:
Retired ~ Pain Management

Clock Hours: 1

Objectives:
• Be able to recognize the difference between acute and chronic pain • Be able to recognize the difference between tolerance, dependence, and addiction • Become familiar with new and advanced medical techniques for dealing with pain • Learn about a model for coping with chronic illness using cognitive techniques • Be able to recognize the difference between accommodation to pain and suffering, and tolerance • Learn when mourning needs to be done during a cognitive model • Learn why trying to control the undesirable events of being human does not work

Description:
Acute pain is adaptive and protective and usually abates with physical recovery. In comparison, chronic pain is defined by the persistence of pain beyond the usual healing time, usually beyond 3 months. Unlike acute pain, chronic pain typically has no adaptive purpose and the onset and cause may be unclear. It can evolve into an entrenched, self-perpetuating cycle of psychological distress and suffering.
