“PAINWeekEnd is a great resource for the primary care physician who manages pain,” says Sanford Silverman, MD.

Lauderdale, 400 Corporate Drive, will provide busy clinicians and allied healthcare practitioners with relevant, practical instruction in the management of chronic pain. “There are many regulations that affect a physician who manages chronic pain. This is particularly true for Florida physicians. This conference is a must for pain practitioners.” Dr. Silverman is CEO of Comprehensive Pain Medicine; Immediate Past President of the Florida Society of Interventional Pain Physicians; and President of the Broward County Medical Association in Pompano Beach. Dr. Silverman is be presenting 2 courses at PWE Ft. Lauderdale and will act as moderator.
The release of the new CDC Guidelines for Prescribing Opioids for Chronic Pain continues to engender debate among practitioners. Pain is a complex and fragmented area of clinical medicine, and the courses presented at PAINWeekEnd will touch upon these and other timely issues.
