This weekend will provide the most up-to-date information on pain care
MONTCLAIR, N.J. (PRWEB) October 30, 2017
Earlier this year, Seattle Pain Centers, serving approximately 25,000 patients, closed after its medical director’s license was suspended. In addition, the Washington State Medical Commission began investigating other doctors and providers. PAINWeekEnd (PWE) on November 18 at the Seattle Marriott Bellevue, 200 110th Avenue NE in Bellevue, Washington, will be an educational and exciting full-day meeting providing busy clinicians and allied healthcare practitioners with 6.0 hours of relevant, practical instruction in the management of chronic pain.
“Medical practitioners who deal with chronic pain will be able to access the latest information on improving pain care while controlling opioids,” says Forest Tennant, MD, DrPH, FACPM, MPH, who will be presenting Chronic Pain Patients Who Fail Standardized Treatment: Identification and Strategies at PWE Seattle. “This weekend will provide the most up-to-date information on pain care as presented at the PAINWeek 2017 Regional Conference,” continued Dr. Tennant, who is Medical Director at Veract Intractable Pain Clinic in West Covina, California.
Dr. Tennant will also be presenting Arachnoiditis: Diagnosis and Treatment. Other courses include Trainwreck: Addressing Complex Pharmacotherapy With the Inherited Pain Patient; The Role of the Advanced Practice Provider in the Acute Care Setting; Cannabis vs Cannabinoids: The Politics of Medical Marijuana; and Complex Cases in Pain Management.*
Commercially supported activities—addressing a range of product, disease state, and medical information topics—will also be presented.
