6th Annual Jackson Trauma Symposium

Course Description:

Around the world, trauma caregivers provide complex care with varying resources, in environments that vary from the most prepared to the most austere. Our Michigan and other regional trauma systems represent an effort to prepare all agencies and facilities, including large metropolitan trauma centers and rural critical access hospitals, to provide optimal trauma care by working together within a system. Educational programs like this one allow us to bring together regional experts to share what they know and prepare all of us to meet that challenge.  

At HFAH, we serve a large population of staff who are on the front lines, or recipients, of the medical trauma services. Trainings that discuss the severity of the events, risks and consequences help social workers to be equipped in a therapeutic setting. This reduces the need that the potentially traumatized patient has to educate the social worker about what happened during the procedure. Oftentimes, clients on our caseload have had a family member who has received trauma care and do not understand what happened.  Social workers with an understanding of the trauma care setting can be informed, appropriately confront the client, and help the person work thru the emotional trauma.

 An additional benefit to the Jackson Trauma Symposium is the ability to minimize vicarious trauma for the therapist. As staff at a hospital, many discussions occur in session where the therapist is not equipped for the medical nature of the conversation. Through education, we can better assist our client while not harming ourselves. Experts in the field will educate the Social Worker on injuries, medications that create injury, Opioid use for pain, and a positive way to grieve.

Has Michigan Gone to Pot? Current Cannabis Practices and Controversies: Medical Ethics and Pain Management

Course Description:

As of November 2018, both medical and recreational marijuana are legal in Michigan. Marijuana remains classified as a Schedule 1 drug by the US Drug Enforcement Administration.(DEA)-the same as heroin, LSD, methamphetamines and peyote. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not recognized or approved the marijuana plant as medicine. Such discrepancies lead to confusion among physicians, NPs, nurses, PAs and allied health care professionals as to what they can and can’t prescribe or treat with medical marijuana and for what conditions. How do the decriminalization and legalization of recreational marijuana play into this landscape? What is the role of medicine, the “big pot/big tobacco” industry and politics? How addictive is marijuana (medical and recreational?) What is cannabis use disorder? What do evidence based studies show as well as evidence and data from states like Colorado? What are the dangers and risks of edible cannabis for children? These questions are answered at this conference.

Understanding Pain: Migraines, Headaches, Neck and Low Back Pain

Course Description:

The course is directly relevant to social work professionals, as the most current (2018) evidence shows the confluence of high burdens: chronic pain-related

disability (such as with spinal pain) or reduced socioeconomic standing and perspectives (such as with chronic headaches) and pharmaceutical agents dependence and overuse/abuse, contributing to higher-than-expected vulnerability and potential failure of selective and indicated interventions. The course will address the socioethical issue of appropriateness of disclosure of protected information, especially in the setting of chronic pain and elevated risk of drug dependence and substance use. The course will also provide the social worker with a crucial update on the physiology of pain based on most recent neuroscientific research, most importantly, neurotransmitter imbalances observed in chronic pain, update on medications used on-label and off-label for management of pain, as well as specific recommendations on establishment of realistic pain control and activity level goals, reduction of chronicity, and non-medication approaches available to sufferers of acute and chronic pain.

Informed Approaches to Compassionate Pain Management

Course Description:

Pain affects more than 100 million U.S. residents, and most social workers will work with patients and families whose lives have been touched by pain. However, chronic pain can be devastating and a challenge to treat, leading to years of physical and emotional suffering. Effective pain management has been complicated by myths and misconceptions held about people affected by chronic pain. We must seize every opportunity to challenge patient, provider, and systemic barriers to effective pain management. In using affirmative models of practice, social workers can assist those with chronic pain reduce suffering and increase quality of life in a variety of ways, from providing one-on-one/family/group psychotherapy and education to fighting for health care equity and social justice. Special attention will be placed on pain management as a global human right. The roles of the social worker in pain management will be considered, and resources will be shared.
