PAINWeek is the largest US pain conference for frontline clinicians with an interest in pain management.
The annual conference presents 120+ hours of continuing medical education courses and master classes, special interest sessions, and satellite events geared toward physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, pharmacists, hospitalists, psychologists, and other healthcare professionals involved in pain management.
PAINWeek 2018 offers a multidisciplinary faculty and diverse curriculum in the following course concentrations: behavioral, functional, integrative, and interventional pain management, health coaching, medical/legal issues, neurology, pain and chemical dependency, physical therapy, palliative care, pharmacotherapy, and wound care. There will also be full-day programs presented by the American Pain Society, the American Society of Pain Educators, the International Pelvic Pain Society, and the National Association of Drug Diversion Investigators.
Who should attend:
If you are a primary care clinician, you are a frontline practitioner, and you should attend PAINWeek. This includes primary care physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, psychologists, and those in other medical specialties. With only 4,000 pain specialists in active practice nationwide, there are simply not enough to go around. The burden of care for patients with pain falls to the primary care clinician, who MUST be prepared to assess, diagnose, and manage their patients’ pain conditions.
