Using Mobile Technology for Person-centered Pain Management, Research and Education

The Pain Management Best Practices Inter-Agency Task Force, a U.S. federal advisory committee, advocates individualized, person-centered care (PCC) to improve the lives of pain patients and to decrease opioid dependency and overdose deaths. PCC pain management apps, such as the one used by the University of Michigan School of Dentistry, can provide artificial intelligence-enabled monitoring of symptoms in real-time as well as treatment efficacy. Presenters will discuss this three-dimensional mobile app that tracks pain activity, facilitates the analysis of individual and group responses to therapy and how to better approach patients experiencing pain. Participants will determine how mobile technology can help address Commission on Dental Accreditation (CODA) accreditation standards.

Learning Objectives

  1. Define PCC and methods of applying it to pain management.
  2. Demonstrate how a mobile, pain-tracking app can support PCC.
  3. Use a mobile, pain-tracking app to address CODA competencies related to PCC.
