Chronic pain patients are on the doorstep of every healthcare provider on Main Street USA
Montclair, NJ (PRWEB) October 06, 2015
Convening Saturday, October 17, PAINWeekEnd Pittsburgh 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. The conference will take place at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center, 1000 Fort Duquesne Blvd.
PAINWeekEnd Regional Conferences offer 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.
Pennsylvania requires all physicians to obtain 100 hours of CME every 2 years. By attending PAINWeekEnd Pittsburgh, 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: chronic pain assessment; risk assessment: how to do it, how to use it; “fire the molecule, not the patient!” and addressing irresponsible prescribing to universal precautions; when acute pain becomes chronic; patient centered urine drug testing; and creating a treatment plan for higher risk patients: a case based approach. In addition, there will be commercially supported activities addressing a range of product, disease state, and medical information topics.
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.
The online registration fee for PAINWeekEnd Conferences is $99.
