This course will dive into the literature and claims data that supports ongoing chronic pain management and reveal a time-tested system to effectively transition patients to self-pay while improving compliance. Formally called “Transition from Discharge to Wellness”, this webinar has been greatly enhanced with new data and research. Dr. Ronald Farabaugh will show you how to take the stress out of practice. We will discuss: (1) how insurance views acute vs. chronic care, (2) the literature related to ongoing care, (3) a schematic describing proper evidence-based case management, (4) how to communicate clinical needs to patients, (5) getting your staff on board with the evidence-based direction of practice, and (6) Becoming recognized as THE authority in your town.
1) Identify the literature related to chronic pain management;
2) Recognize guidelines related to chronic pain management;
3) Propose strategies to communicate the benefits of chiropractic to your patients and to the public, business, and medical industries.
