PAINWeekEnd conferences are a further response to the continuing medical education needs of primary care providers—who are charged with reducing the burden of suffering and providing a better quality of life for patients with chronic pain.
Montclair, NJ (PRWEB) March 29, 2011
PAINWeek®, the nation’s largest conference on pain management for frontline practitioners will present a new 2-day pain education program, presented May 21-22 at the Minneapolis Convention Center. The PAINWeekEnd Regional Conferences are a series of locally presented events for healthcare professionals in all disciplines with an interest in pain management. These conferences provide a conveniently-located preview of 10 course hours (out of 100+) that attendees can experience at the annual PAINWeek National Conference.
Pain is the primary reason Americans seeks healthcare. However, the continued absence of formal training in pain management, together with the prevalence of uncoordinated care, results in significant barriers to providing relief and restoring functionality to many patients with chronic pain.
Debra Weiner, Director of Program Development noted “We are referring to the PAINWeekEnd experience as ‘Serious Free Time’ because the relevance and importance of comprehensive pain management education continues to grow. This has been demonstrated by the increase in attendance that we have noted at PAINWeek, now the largest such professional conference in the nation. PAINWeekEnd conferences are a further response to the continuing medical education needs of primary care providers—who are charged with reducing the burden of suffering and providing a better quality of life for patients with chronic pain.”
PAINWeekEnd Conference attendees will be able to earn certified continuing medical education credits (up to 10 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™) via a diverse course agenda presented by a multidisciplinary faculty. In addition, there will be commercially supported activities, both certified and noncertified, addressing a range of product, disease state, and medical information topics.
PAINWeekEnd Regional Conferences provide great value with a registration fee of $49; overnight accommodations are available at the Hyatt Regency at a specially negotiated rate of $135 per night (based on double-occupancy). An additional bonus to PAINWeekEnd registrants will be the opportunity to credit their entire registration fee toward their attendance at the PAINWeek National Conference, to be held September 7-10 at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.
