S13 - S13: NRS: Non Pharmacologic Management of Pain in CF


Nov 3, 2017 10:30am ‐ Nov 3, 2017 11:55am

Description

Pain in CF is common and reported to affect quality of life and survival (Havermans, 2013). Furthermore, treatment of pain in CF may be challenging and complicated by concerns regarding comorbidities, adverse effects of medications, implications for transplant, and influence of depression and anxiety. This symposium will discuss integration of opioids within the pain management regimen, as a bridge to non-pharmacological treatments, including when to wean or when to add opioid therapy. A comprehensive overview of non-pharmacologic management of pain in CF will also be presented. The session also explores the co-occurrence of depression, anxiety and PTSD with chronic pain and psychological treatment of chronic pain. Finally, an individual with CF will describe their experience with pain. Participants will deepen their understanding of management of pain in CF and utilize this knowledge to identify opportunities to integrate non-pharmacologic strategies in the treatment regimen.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Discuss the decision points for choosing pharmacologic vs non-pharmacologic interventions.
  2. Describe the experience of pain in CF from a patient's perspective.
  3. Discuss the co-occurrence of depression and anxiety with pain and psychological treatment for pain in CF.
