Better than any academic meeting I¹ve ever attended
Montclair, NJ (PRWEB) October 08, 2015
"Better than any academic meeting I've ever attended!" said Irving Blatt, MD, FACS, MHA, of the PAINWeekEnd in New Orleans. PAINWeekEnd Baltimore is sure to be as informative! 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.
Convening on Saturday and Sunday, October 24-25, at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront, 700 Aliceanna Street, PAINWeekEnd Baltimore is constructed to meet the needs of busy clinicians and allied healthcare practitioners, delivering 2 full days of relevant, practical instruction in the management of chronic pain, together with the opportunity for stimulating interaction and exchange with faculty and fellow attendees.
Maryland requires all physicians to obtain 50 hours of CME every 2 years. By attending PAINWeekEnd Baltimore, participants can receive 14.0 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: when acute pain becomes chronic; embrace 2015 practice changes and patient education: overview of critical pain management practice issues; dodging elusive and miscalculated opioid risks; chronic pain assessment; nonopioid analgesics: antidepressants, adjuvant therapies, and muscle relaxants; differential diagnosis of low back pain; legal perspective on practicing medicine and offering ancillary services; acetaminophen, NSAIDs, and opioids, OH MY!
