Bringing Pain Rehabilitation to Indiana: Process and Progress
For many years, multidisciplinary pain rehabilitation was a treatment option requiring Hoosiers to travel hundreds of miles to access, often paying out of pocket for travel and lodging. Recently, IU Health leadership made accessing this treatment option a priority and developed a psychology-led multidisciplinary pain rehabilitation program to treat patients with chronic pain. This presentation will discuss the biopsychosocial impact of chronic pain, the rationale behind multidisciplinary pain rehabilitation programs that treat these factors, and the social and political factors that impact treatment options and access in this population. We will highlight the development and implementation of the Pain Rehabilitation Program at IU Health with particular emphasis on the role of psychology in the context of the program as a whole and how we function within the multidisciplinary team. We will discuss the ways in which this treatment differs from other pain management treatments, advantages and disadvantages to this treatment model, and how our program has sought to overcome barriers to participating in such an intense treatment modality. We will also provide information on the diverse population this program has served thus far and the outcomes obtained.
Learning Objectives
By completing this program, participants will able to:
1.    Summarize the basic rationale for a multidisciplinary pain rehabilitation program.
2.    List the differences between interdisciplinary programs like IU Health, single discipline treatments, and multidisciplinary care. 
3.    Describe the ways that patients from diverse backgrounds may experience different levels of access to a variety of care options.
4.    Identify patients who may benefit from a higher level of pain care and provide appropriate referrals to available services. 

Presenter Bio:  Amanda Wakefield, Psy.D.
I am a clinical psychologist with Indiana University Health Physicians and Assistant Professor of Clinical Psychiatry at IU School of Medicine. My current primary role is as a psychologist with the Pain Rehabilitation Program which launched officially in December 2021. I earned a master’s degree in psychology and a Doctorate of Psychology in Clinical Psychology both from University of Indianapolis. I completed a health psychology focused internship at Richard L. Roudebush VA in Indianapolis followed by a postdoctoral fellowship in pain psychology at the James A. Haley VA in Tampa, Florida. My work thus far has been primarily direct clinical intervention and program development, but I am excited to be taking part in my first internship training year at IU and am seeking out additional research opportunities.
