REHAB 536 - Assessment and Management of Pain

★ 3 (fi 15) (either term or Spring/Summer, 3-0-0) This course will explore how pain is assessed, quantified, and communicated, in addition to how the individual, the health system and society affect these activities. Building on foundations developed in Rehab 535, this course will present models of and approaches to assessment of and treatment for common pain conditions across the lifespan, with an emphasis on complex/chronic pain. Rationale for pharmacological and non-pharmacological interventions will be reviewed in the context of assessment and outcome assessment. Participants will discuss best practice roles and evidence-based roles and interventions for each of the health professionals involved in the collaborative interprofessional assessment and management of chronic pain. Prerequisite: REHAB 535.
