Psychosocial Issues in Complex Pain Cases: A Practical Approach
Injured workers with complex pain conditions have varying comorbidities, expectations, habits and coping styles, which affect how they perceive illness and how they recover from it. Payers are gradually recognizing that despite the industry’s preference for simple solutions, people are not simple and some cases require complex coordination. The biopsychosocial model is increasingly discussed in the workers’ compensation industry for managing complex pain conditions.
Psychosocial approaches to care must be selected and managed thoughtfully. Join Steven Moskowitz, MD, Senior Medical Director for Paradigm Outcomes, and Evelyn Bonilla, Director of Clinical Services for Paradigm Outcomes, to discuss how to improve recovery by applying a systematic behavioral change approach to help navigate complex pain claims to a better clinical outcome and claim disposition.
