Pain Science Lecture Series: Biopsychosocial Model of Pain Management
This lecture will explore the differences between acute and chronic pain, and address the reasons that chronic pain is more optimally treated with a biopsychosocial approach. This lecture will be presented by Stanford pain psychology fellow Mandy Conrad.
The Pain Science Lecture Series was created in 2016 by Heather Poupore-King, PhD, a Stanford clinical associate professor in the division of pain medicine and pain psychologist, to provide community-based education about chronic pain. These free monthly series are presented by Stanford pain medicine and pain psychology fellows and focus on various topics, including biological, psychological, behavioral and social factors as they relate to the experience of chronic pain.
Anyone interested in learning about chronic pain may attend. This event is limited to adults only.
