Not everyone has 5 days to spend in Las Vegas at PAINWeek—the largest US pain conference for frontline practitioners. So why not attend a full-day PAINWeekEnd regional conference practically in your own back yard? Registration is now open for the autumn conferences. There are even a few openings still available for Saturday, September 26’s New Orleans conference! The 9 other cities are Woodcliff Lake (NJ), Milwaukee, Salt Lake City, Pittsburgh, Baltimore, Dallas, Lexington, Houston, and Honolulu. For more information—dates, courses, faculty—visit painweekend.org.
PAINWeekEnd 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. Now in their 5th year, PAINWeekEnd regional conferences are produced by PAINWeek. 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!”
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. PAINWeekEnd full-day programs bring relevant, practical instruction in the management of chronic pain, together with the opportunity for stimulating interaction and exchange with faculty and fellow attendees.
