CPRA Director & Scientific Advisory Board Member Present on TMD and Chronic Overlapping Pain Conditions
The Chronic Pain Research Alliance – an initiative of The TMJ Association – was created in 2009 to advance high-caliber research on Chronic Overlapping Pain Conditions (COPCs), of which TMD is one.
This spring, the CPRA’s director, Christin Veasley, and Scientific Advisory Board Member, Sean Mackey, MD, PhD, Chief of the Division of Pain Medicine and Redlich Professor of Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine at Stanford University, gave a presentation on COPCs at the 38th annual meeting of the American Academy of Pain Medicine (AAPM).
Meeting attendees gave their presentation, The Latest in Chronic Overlapping Pain Conditions (COPCs), the second highest ranking out of the 35 total presentations given at the meeting. Ms. Veasley and Dr. Mackey summarized recent findings from large-scale COPCs studies, highlighted current evidence on common underlying mechanisms of disease and discussed recent efforts to develop patient-centered measurement tools for COPCs. They concluded the presentation by summarizing how recent developments can help to transform the current state of poor care and treatment of COPCs to a patient-centered, personalized model of care that incorporates principles of shared decision-making and goal-setting.
Ms. Veasley also discussed COPCs in a second presentation on whole-person care for chronic back pain and was the recipient of the AAPM’s 2022 Patient Advocacy Award.
