Talking to Farmers About Their Pain
The occupational hazards that farmers face put them at greater risk for acute and chronic pain as a result of ergonomic repetition, accident, or surgical procedure. Addressing specific occupational sources of pain and what activities the pain inhibits are crucial to improving treatment. This module will focus on how to transform the conversation between provider and patient to improve health outcomes and patient satisfaction.
At the end of the presentation, participants will be able to:
1. Understand the prevalence of occupational hazards amongst farming occupations.
2. Recognize occupational implications as they relate to acute and chronic pain.
3. Gain strategies to improve provider-patient conversations about occupational farmer pain.
4. Identify patient resources to aid in facilitating candid discussion about pain.
