Throwing Darts at a Moving Target: Using the Recent CPG on Chronic Musculoskeletal Pain to Ensure You Hit the Bullseye
Chronic musculoskeletal pain has reached epidemic levels around the world. Millions of people suffering turn to Chiropractors and other professionals for relief of their symptoms. Unfortunately, there is no absolute consensus on the best way to manage and treat these people. In the wake of the lack of an accepted standard of care, Chiropractors attempt different techniques, modalities, and practice styles with different outcomes. How can we be certain our treatment plans are backed up by the most current evidence? When do Chiropractors co-manage with other specialties? How often should they present for therapy? This webinar will explore the nature of clinical evidence, what a clinical practice guideline (CPG) is, how we can use them to strengthen our care plans, and how the Chiropractic profession, through the Clinical Compass, is bridging the gap between evidence and everyday practice.
Learning objectives – After attending this webinar, attendees will be able to:
-Describe how a Clinical Practice Guideline (CPG) is developed and subsequently used in everyday practice
