Targeted pain treatment is the process of accurately diagnosing the underlying cause of pain, and the targeting the treatment to the cause of pain. The goal is to effectively treat pain and improve function, while also reducing unnecessary opioid medication use.
Targeted Pain Treatment differs from other approaches to pain management by seeking to treat the true cause of pain, rather than focusing on lowering a patient's pain score.
Purpose of the TPT Toolkit is to provide tools and information needed to help clinicians implement targeted pain treatment in their practices. These include decision aids, references, and other useful resources as developed and collated. The TPT Toolkit contains downloadable tools, templates and decision aids to help you practice Targeted Pain Treatment and infographics.
