Newsflash: Pain Management


FRR's Pain Management Program



As the Medical Management of Chronic Pain continues to be a growing topic of concern in our industry, FRR currently offers a variety of resources to review and manage files involving chronic, high level opioid usage. Our Nurses review cases for Medication Reconciliation, meet with Treating Physicians to discuss current treatment regimes, coordinate Independent Medical Examinations to determine ongoing needs, and prepare files for Utilization Review. Use of the standardized morphine equivalent calculator (developed by the Washington State Agency Medical Directors' Group), in conjunction with the Interagency Guidelines (developed for opioid dosing for Chronic Non-cancer Pain), assist in determining a measurable daily dosage, particularly when multiple medications are in play.
FRR Nurse Case Manager, Bonnie Painter, RN-BC, CCM, Nurse Case Manager is certified in Pain Management Nursing by the Registered Nurse-Board Certified credential. Bonnie became a valued member of our Nurse Case Management Team in July 2011, managing both Field and Telephonic Cases, in Delaware, Maryland's Eastern Shore and Southeastern Pennsylvania. Bonnie's specialties include Cardiac, Trauma, and Utilization Review for well over 13 years.
