“In the current environment of opiate abuse and ever changing local and federal regulations, we provide education that will help practitioners address the needs of their patients who are suffering from pain, within the boundaries of the guidelines and regulations,” says Srinivas Nalamachu, MD, professor of rehabilitation medicine and President/Medical Director of the International Clinical Research Institute in Overland Park, Kansas.
A new flight of PAINWeekEnd Regional Conferences offers an educational solution to the challenge facing healthcare providers in hospital and office-based practice settings nationwide: how to meet the growing demand for chronic pain care in an increasingly stringent regulatory environment for prescribers.
Convening on Saturday, June 27, at the Westin Kansas City at Crown Center, 1 East Pershing Road, PAINWeekEnd Kansas City 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.
Missouri law requires all physicians to obtain 50 hours of CME during the CME reporting period (every 2 years). By attending PAINWeekEnd Kansas City, participants can receive 7.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ as they enhance their skills in medication risk evaluation and mitigation, in pain assessment and diagnosis, and in the delivery of individualized multimodal treatment.
Now in their 5th year, PAINWeekEnd Regional Conferences are produced by PAINWeek®— the leading pain education resource for frontline practitioners. 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!”
Course topics include: pain basics; risk assessment: how to do it, how to use it; the complex patient; a case based approach to creating a treatment plan for higher risk patients; and regional pain syndromes: neck/back, hip/knee.
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.
The online registration fee for PAINWeekEnd Conferences is $99.
