About the Event
The No Pain Initiative Project at PAVHC aims to improve the overall quality of life for those living with chronic pain. The project will provide an integrative approach towards chronic pain management, including increased understanding, knowledge, and skills, optimization of pain medications, psycho-behavioral and mental health interventions, and complementary medicine such as acupuncture treatments. Participants can understand more about chronic pain and the various treatments by attending health education seminars. They can learn self-management techniques through a structured program such as the Chronic Pain Self-Management Program. They can improve their mental health and coping skills via individual counseling and group discussions. They can receive a psychiatric referral for optimization of their pain medications, as well as acupuncture therapy to decrease pain and minimize or prevent the use of opioid medications.
