Description

Title: 3 - Transition from Acute to Chronic Temporomandibular Disorders: Exploratory Paths

The purpose of this workshop is to bring together educators and clinicians as well as researchers from different disciplines to discuss the current state of research on the transition from acute to chronic temporomandibular disorders (TMD). Students, trainees and patients will also be invited to participate.
In this workshop, we will discuss new research avenues to be explored to give better insights into the currently known mechanisms, risk factors and biomarkers possibly implicated in this acute to chronic TMD transition. Furthermore, it will provide an underpinning for other sessions dealing with new research approaches to improve diagnostic and management approaches to prevent the transition from acute to chronic TMD. We will provide guidance on how to best provide knowledge translation to students, trainees and clinicians dealing with TMD so that they can more effectively communicate and engage with patients and their family caregivers as partners in their clinical practice. Finally, the workshop will provide the basis for discussion of new research approaches to improve the diagnosis and assessment of acute and chronic TMD.

Learning Objectives:

  • Overview of the current knowledge and state of research surrounding orofacial pain, specifically, painful TMD. This will include presentations and discussion periods covering topics related to painful TMD including mechanisms, co-morbidities and risk-factors, biomarkers, and management.
  • Discuss the barriers currently facing knowledge translation in this area, including how to teach more effectively as well as how to implement research into clinical practice. We will also discuss strategies with which we can overcome these barriers. This will include presentations led by a practicing clinician who is also involved in education and research, and perspectives from students and trainees in the field and from pain patients.
  • Discuss the barriers facing disciplinary research in this field. One presentation session will discuss the translation of research into health policy.
