Great educational experience!
Montclair, NJ (PRWEB) May 16, 2016
PAINWeekEnd (PWE) Regional Conferences are now in their 6th year! Attendees have expressed: “Presentations were great and relevant,” “Great educational experience,” and “Speakers were excellent!” PWE Chicago, on May 21 at the Gleacher Center, 450 N. Cityfront Plaza Drive, will provide busy clinicians and allied healthcare practitioners with relevant, practical instruction in the management of chronic pain.
“The unproven mythos of opioid induced hyperalgesia has become the latest banner in the trendy crusade against prescribed opioids,” says R. Norman Harden, MD, “to the ultimate detriment of our patients’ rights and well-being.” Dr. Harden is the Senior Associate Editor of Pain Medicine. 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. Dr. Harden continues, “Our research indicates that all patients with severe chronic pain develop these sensitization phenomena, but that it is no worse in patients on opioids.” He is Lead Consultant, Analgesic Research Consultants LLC, and Professor emeritus at Northwestern University.
