The Perioperative Surgical Home encourages an interdisciplinary approach to perioperative care long after discharge. This session provides novel interdisciplinary strategies to optimize perioperative pain management to bridge the continuum of postoperative pain. In addition, long-term outcomes of routine acute pain interventions, with presentation of real-world implementation efforts will also be discussed.

Novel Interdisciplinary Approaches to Improve Long-Term Outcomes After Surgery

Jennifer Hah, MD MS

Innovative and Established Interdisciplinary Acute Pain Interventions: Separating Fact from Fiction

David A. Edwards, MD PhD

Pathways to Implementation: Preoperative Optimization of Patients with Chronic Pain

Arun Ganesh, MD

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify vulnerable patient populations at-risk for persistent postsurgical pain and related adverse outcomes, and to recognize the role of the interdisciplinary team in identifying these at-risk patients.
  • Develop a comprehensive, interdisciplinary perioperative pain management plan which engages all providers of the treatment team including surgeons, pain specialists, anesthesiologists, advanced practice providers, psychologists, and physical therapists.
  • Incorporate novel interdisciplinary, evidence-based strategies into pain management pathways created by the perioperative surgical home to bridge the gap between acute, subacute, and chronic postoperative pain management.
