Mount Auburn Hospital will start a series of workshops on chronic pain management.
The hospital sent out the following information:
Some medical conditions cause patients to experience long-lasting pain. These sensations can cause frustration, fatigue, isolation, and poor sleep. But they don’t have to. Mount Auburn Hospital recognizes these difficulties and has developed its Chronic Pain Self-Management program to help patients learn strategies to cope with this difficult condition.
This spring, the hospital is pleased to present a six-week class developed by researchers at Stanford University Medical Center. Participants will work on improving their quality of life, communicating more effectively with their providers, and learning techniques to handle stress and improve their energy levels. They will also receive a copy of the book, “Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Pain,” as well as an exercise CD.
WHEN: Every Monday for 6 weeks from 1-3:30 p.m. starting on March 14, 2016.
WHERE: Mount Auburn Hospital, 330 Mount Auburn St., Cambridge, MA 02138
COST: This course is complementary to patients. Registration is required for this class. To enroll, contact Community Health at 617-499-5625.
