PAINWeekEnd (PWE) Alabama, on March 18 at the Grand Bohemian Hotel Mountain Brook, 2655 Lane Park Rd., will be an educational and exciting full-day program providing busy clinicians and allied healthcare practitioners with 6.0 hours of relevant, practical instruction in the management of chronic pain.

In the United States from 1999 through 2010, prescription opioid sales quadrupled, with Alabama leading the way. And between 2013 and 2014, the number of drug overdose deaths in Alabama increased by about 20%, the second largest increase in the country. Pain management education is crucial. At PWE Birmingham, course topics/titles (subject to change) include Pain Pathophysiology Unraveled; The Use of Viscosupplementation in FDA-Approved and Nonapproved Joints; Embrace 2017 Practice Changes and Patient Education: Overview of Critical Pain Management Practice Issues; Pain Diagnostics: Clinical Pearls to Improve Common Tests for Pain; Botulinum Toxins as Neuromodulators in Chronic Pain Management; Get Your Specimens in Order: How to Avoid Bad Company and Tame the Paper Beast Associated With Testing Drugs of Abuse.

In addition, there will be commercially supported activities addressing a range of product, disease state, and medical information topics. To see the complete agenda and more information about this or other PAINWeekEnd Regional Conference offerings, go to painweekend.org.

The online registration fee for this PAINWeekEnd Conference is $129. PAINWeekEnd registrants are further offered the opportunity to register for the 2017 PAINWeek National Conference, September 5-9, in Las Vegas, for $200 off the current online published price.
