Pain education is no longer a novelty, it's a necessity
Montclair, NJ (PRWEB) March 01, 2016
PAINWeekEnd attendees have spoken! “Excellent speakers + presentations. I was ready to just put in my time to get my CEs and endure a necessary topic. Instead I enjoyed a variety of useful presentations given by experts who were willing to make their specialty applicable to those of us in family practice. I was very impressed by the conference and would definitely recommend it to others.”
PAINWeekEnd Regional Conferences are now in their 6th year! PWE Birmingham on March 19 will provide busy clinicians and allied healthcare practitioners with relevant, practical instruction in the management of chronic pain. The conference, offering continuing medical and clinical pain education, will take place at the Birmingham Marriott, 3590 Grandview Parkway.
“Pain education is no longer a novelty, it's a necessity,” says Geralyn Datz, PhD. “Chronic pain is the nation's number one health problem. It permeates every level of healthcare—from urgent care to specialty care.” Dr. Datz is a licensed clinical health psychologist at Southern Behavioral Medicine Associates in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. She is also president of the Southern Pain Society in Asheville, North Carolina, and will be moderating PAINWeekEnd Birmingham. “PAINWeekEnd conferences are a great opportunity to educate and empower healthcare providers in the fight against pain.”
