Chronic pain impacts the lives of Veterans across the country, and this decreased physical function can negatively affect their sense of self and their connection to community. Tom Carter, Dr. Elisabeth Saxton, and Eryn Weldon from CBI Health participated as guest speakers in the Veteran & Family Well-Being virtual event hosted by the Chronic Pain Centre of Excellence on December 1st to share more about our Pain Management Program and how it is geared towards helping Veterans reintegrate back into their communities.
Our Pain Management Program takes an evidence-based approach to rehabilitation and includes different interventions that are personalized to the unique needs of each Veteran, such as biopsychosocial assessments, acceptance and commitment therapy, self-regulation, physical function, community integration, and more. Rather than focusing on what an individual cannot do, our team works with Veterans to establish goals centered on their values and what they themselves would like to be able to accomplish in their life. The program has received incredible feedback and support since its launch.
