Presented by PAINWeek®—the leading pain education resource for frontline practitioners—is a new flight of live regional conferences offering an educational solution to the challenges facing healthcare providers in hospital and office-based practice settings. The conference agenda addresses how prescribers can meet the growing demand for chronic pain care in an increasingly stringent regulatory environment. Now in its 5th year, PAINWeekEnd Regional Conferences bring cutting-edge knowledge to practitioners across the US in easily accessible destination-style locations.
Convening on Saturday, June 13, at The Westin Denver Downtown, 1672 Lawrence Street, PAINWeekEnd Denver is constructed to meet the needs of busy clinicians and allied healthcare practitioners, delivering a full day of relevant, practical instruction in the management of chronic pain, together with the opportunity for stimulating interaction and exchange with faculty and fellow attendees.
In Denver, course topics will include: a differential diagnosis of low back pain; an overview of critical pain management practice issues; how to conduct and how to use risk assessment; interventional options for the management of low back pain; a case-based approach to treatment planning for higher risk patients; and the impact of changes to the clinical lab fee schedule (CLFS) and payor policies on medical record documentation.
The PAINWeekEnd curriculum will be presented by a multidisciplinary faculty and is intended for frontline clinicians including physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and pharmacists. In addition, there will be commercially supported activities addressing a range of product, disease state, and medical information topics.
Chronic pain is a major public health issue and a concern that primary care clinicians face every day as they absorb the burden of care for an aging population. Summing up the challenge, senior PAINWeek faculty member Kevin L. Zacharoff, MD, FACIP, FACPE, FAAP, remarked, “Chronic pain patients are on the doorstep of every healthcare provider on Main Street USA!”
