S19--CLIN-NRS: *Pain Management in CF

Oct 20, 2018 2:30pm ‐ Oct 20, 2018 3:55pm


Pain is increasingly recognized as a common and clinically important symptom in people with CF. Some estimate that up to 80% of adults with CF experience frequent pain that is at least moderately severe. However, there is poor understanding about what constitutes 'CF pain' and even less agreement on appropriate and effective treatment strategies. This session will feature four speakers who will address the following topics: 1. Parsing CF pain into nociceptive, neuropathic, and centralized pain with appropriate treatment targeting. 2. Managing misuse, abuse, and addiction to opioids. 3. Cognitive behavioral therapy for chronic pain. 4. Physical therapy and exercise therapy for pain management.

Learning Objectives:

  • Explain the different types of pain common in people with CF and understand how this shapes treatment.
  • Define strategies for preventing and managing misuse and addiction to opioids.
  • Discuss how cognitive behavioral therapy, physical therapy and exercise therapy can be utilized for CF pain management.
