Last week I described some of the reasons for using a case formulation approach when working through initial assessment information, and today I’m going to describe one approach for organising a formulation. This is the “4 P” formulation, and it’s one that’s often used in mental health (Bolton, 2014). In the 4 P model, there are four questions to ask yourself: Preconditions – Why is this person vulnerable to this problem?Precipitating factors – Why now? This can mean “why is this person having symptoms now?” or “why is this person presenting to this person ...

Hi y'all, I plan on giving a presentation to a large local family medicine group and I'm reaching out to see what YOU would like to learn from someone who is in pain management. This may be one presentation or a short series. Ideally, this would be useful and practical. So, think more 'what is the best muscle relaxant' and less of the esoteric 'different opioid subtypes receptors.' I hope that made sense. Below are some ideas. I'm open to hearing from YOU. Which muscle relaxant to... Read more

ConclusionThe e-TEP-RS technique for large, complex, midline, ventral abdominal hernias can be used with excellent results and acceptable morbidity. This technique is technically challenging and should be mastered in relatively smaller ventral hernias to achieve good results before attempting it in larger, complex ones.

This study evaluates the effectiveness of two postoperative analgesia modalities: epidural cat heter and surgeon-performed TAP-block following VHR performed with transversus abdominis release (TAR).MethodsA retrospective analysis was performed on data prospectively collected between 2012 and 2019. All patients undergoing open VHR with TAR performed by a single surgeon were identified. Parastomal hernia repairs and any patients receiving ultrasound-guided TAP blocks or paraspinal blocks were excluded. Primary outcome was length of stay (LOS) with secondary outcomes including pain scores, opioid requirements, and 30-day morb...

eacute; Mark P. Jensen Jordi Miró Electronic health literacy skills and competences are important for empowering people to have an active role in making appropriate health care decisions. The aims of this cross-sectional study were to (1) examine the frequency of use of the Internet for seeking online information about chronic pain, (2) determine the level of eHealth literacy skills in the study sample, (3) identify the factors most closely associated with higher levels of eHealth literacy, and (4) examine self-efficacy as a potential mediator of the association between eHealth literacy and measures of pain ...

Suffering holds a central place within pain research, theory, and practice. However, the construct of pain-related suffering has yet to be operationalized by the International Association for the Study of Pain and is largely underdeveloped. Eric Cassell's seminal work on suffering serves as a conceptual anchor for the limited pain research that specifically addresses this construct. Yet, important critiques of Cassell's work have not been integrated within the pain literature. This Focus Article aims to take a preliminary step towards an updated operationalization of pain-related suffering by (1) presenting key attributes ...

Am J Perinatol DOI: 10.1055/s-0041-1739521 Objective Silver dressings have been associated with a decrease in postoperative pain in selected populations, but it is unknown if the benefit can be observed after cesarean deliveries. We sought to evaluate the impact of silver nylon dressings in reducing postoperative pain after cesarean delivery. Study Design A secondary analysis of data from a blinded randomized clinical trial of women undergoing cesarean delivery scheduled and unscheduled at a single site was conducted. Women were recruited for participation from a single site and randomized to a silver nylon...
