On the heels of Chronic Pain, Alosa Health has recently released an Acute Pain module through Pennsylvania’s PACE program.
Acute pain is a frequent problem for older individuals and its prevalence has been shown to increase with age. Effective treatment of acute pain is important and reduces suffering, improves return to function, and importantly, may help prevent progression to chronic pain. This module focuses on finding the right balance between under-treating acute pain and over-medicating for a self-limited condition.
Our team of academic detailers is already out in the field delivering this module to providers across the state of Pennsylvania.
