Transformative Care for Orofacial Disorders
When implementing transformative care for orofacial disorders, our main goals should go beyond management and include training to reduce risk factors and enhance protective factors and education on prevention toward recurrence or toward a chronic pain state.
- Transformative care involves the following tasks:
Evaluating the person with chronic pain as a whole by identifying and understanding both their risk and protective factors.
Improving the safety of treatments to minimize the development or progression of orofacial disorders as an adverse event.
Implementing a transformative model of healthcare through a team approach
Continuing medical and dental education courses that review the fundamentals of this new approach to care. New healthcare routines should include toolkits to implement online self-management training with evidence-based therapies.
Supporting resources to help implement transformative care.
