Pain Management & Appropriate Care Of The Terminally Ill: Somatoform Disorders

The UCSD CMA Pain Management and Appropriate Care of the Terminally Ill: Somatoform Disorders program features a series of pain case conferences in which physicians present interesting and challenging cases to a multidisciplinary pain panel of experts knowledgeable in treating the type of pain each patient presents. The patient's physician provides the history, examination, labs and radiology, and diagnosis along with other pertinent information to the panel. Experts give brief presentations on topics specific to the case. The panel discussions include the overall assessment, anatomy, etiology, prevalence, patient education procedures, treatment options and patient monitoring.
