$0.00 Patients with chronic low back pain (CLBP) constitute about 5% of all patients with back pain and account for over 75% of the cost of low back pain management. The economic impact of chronic low back pain stems from prolonged loss of function, resulting in loss of work productivity, treatment costs, and disability payments. Estimates of these costs range from $12.2 to $90.6 billion annually. Most primary care clinicians can expect to see at least one patient with low back pain per week. Maximizing Treatment Options in Patients with Chronic Low Back Pain is a case-based activity describing current guidelines and providing options and tips for individualizing care of your patients with CLBP to improve their quality of life. Medicinal cannabis will be discussed and helpful tools and resources to support the appropriate care of patients with CLBP provided.
