Activity: Talk or presentation › Oral presentation
In the Netherlands, 2 million patients experience musculoskeletal chronic pain. This has a considerable socio-economical impact caused by healthcare costs and work disability. There is a large interindividual variation of the impact of biopsychosocial factors on the patients’ functioning and participation. Current healthcare organization for management of chronic pain is insufficient and inefficient. Often, a patient receives a large variety of treatments based on different frameworks and explanations for the pain problem. This time-consuming search, for often a solution for pain, repeatedly leads to disappointment. According to reports from the Taskforce ‘De juiste zorg op de juiste plek’ (2018) and the ‘Zorgstandaard Chronische Pijn (2017)’ an integrated biopsychosocial view, assessment and treatment is indicated. The workshop will explore initiatives, barriers and facilitators, and effectivity of organizing chronic pain rehabilitation networks.
All presented networks in this mini-symposium contain elements of:
Transdisciplinary collaboration (within and between primary, secondary and tertiary care); lead to better understanding between healthcare professionals and a patient centered approach
Integration of the biopsychosocial view
Transparency in determination of complexity and referral of the patients to the right place based on the complexity of their complaints (Matched care).
Transparency of the treatment protocols.
