MONTCLAIR, N.J., May 7, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- PAINWeekEnd on June 1 at the Jacksonville Marriott, 4670 Salisbury Road in Florida, will be a timely full day program providing busy clinicians and allied healthcare practitioners with 6.0 hours of relevant, practical instruction in the management of chronic pain.
Florida's Controlled Substances Bill, containing a range of provisions to address the opioid public health crisis in the state, became effective last year. Concern over balancing regulation of opioid prescribing with addressing the interests of patients with pain led the Florida Department of Health to launch an information campaign subsequent to the bill's enactment.
A press release announcing the "Take Control" campaign said in part, "The department encourages patients to discuss all options with their treating physician, so they may work together to pursue a course of treatment which manages their pain, anxiety, and provides quality of life."
The PAINWeekEnd curriculum is designed to enhance the readiness of primary care providers to devise and implement multimodal approaches to pain management.
Veteran PAINWeek and PAINWeekEnd faculty speaker David Glick, DC, DAAPM, CPE, FASPE, commented, "Education is vitally important, not just for healthcare providers. We must engage patients, to insure better safety and efficacy. Providing the patient with basic understanding of what to expect from their treatment goes a long way."
At PAINWeekEnd Jacksonville, Dr. Glick will present his courses Pain Pathways Made Simple, and Clinical Pearls: Unraveling the Secrets of Imaging Studies.
He concludes, "When practitioners are armed with patient engagement strategies, there is a greater tendency for patients to feel as if a burden has been lifted from their shoulders. They are able to work with their healthcare provider for better, more effective clinical outcomes."
Other courses to be offered at PAINWeekEnd Jacksonville include Relax, All Antispasmodics are the Same… Right?; Osteoarthritis Pain: Past, Present, and Future; Ketamine: Not Just for Horses; Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathic Pain: Evaluating Treatment Options. Commercially supported activities—addressing a range of product, disease state, and medical information topics—will also be presented.
