Many healthcare professionals do not feel adequately trained to evaluate and treat the patient in pain. The Pain Medicine Best Practices: Integrative Solutions for Critical Challenges Preconference is designed for pain specialists and subspecialists, primary care providers, and trainees interested in learning how to optimize the management of chronic pain with opioid analgesics and non-opioid therapies.
This session will provide timely and practical information for pain management delivered through didactic lectures, case studies with audience response participation, and interactive small group discussions. Bring your toughest clinical dilemma and join expert faculty to examine the compelling challenges facing pain medicine practitioners today as well as in the coming decades. Together, faculty and attendees will explore current evidence, best practices, and emerging therapies to develop practical and integrative solutions.
In the afternoon, attendees will rotate through three small group breakout sessions featuring spinal cord stimulation technological updates, medical and interventional approaches to headache management, and diagnostic conundrums for treatment of neck versus shoulder and back versus hip pain. Experts in the field will serve as breakout faculty to provide interactive training to attendees.
