Montclair, NJ (PRWEB) October 15, 2015 -- Convening Saturday, November 7, PAINWeekEnd Dallas is constructed to meet the needs of busy clinicians and allied healthcare practitioners, delivering a full day of relevant, practical instruction in the management of chronic pain, together with the opportunity for stimulating interaction and exchange with faculty and fellow attendees. The conference will take place at the Westin Galleria Dallas, 13340 Dallas Parkway.
An attendee at the Salt Lake City PAINWeekEnd said, "I thought this was a very educational seminar--very educated lecturers! Great job!" PAINWeekEnd Regional Conferences offer an educational solution to the challenge facing healthcare providers in hospital and office-based practice settings nationwide: how to meet the growing demand for chronic pain care in an increasingly stringent regulatory environment for prescribers. In addition to Dallas, there will be conferences in Lexington, Houston, and Honolulu.
Texas requires all physicians to obtain 24 hours of CME every year, and at least 2 formal hours involving the study of medical ethics and/or professional responsibility. By attending PAINWeekEnd Dallas, participants can receive 7.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™—and 1.5 Ethics Credits (for the course entitled “Get Your Specimens in Order: The Impact of Changes to the Clinical Laboratory Fee Schedule (CLFS) and Payor Policies on Medical Record Documentation) as they enhance their skills in medication risk evaluation and mitigation, in pain assessment and diagnosis, and in the delivery of individualized multimodal treatment.
Now in their 5th year, PAINWeekEnd Regional Conferences are produced by PAINWeek®— the leading pain education resource for frontline practitioners. Chronic pain is a major public health issue and a concern that primary care clinicians face every day as they absorb the burden of care for an aging population. Summing up the challenge, senior PAINWeek faculty member Kevin L. Zacharoff, MD, FACIP, FACPE, FAAP, remarked, “Chronic pain patients are on the doorstep of every healthcare provider on Main Street USA!”
Course topics including diagnosis and management of low back pain; an overview of critical pain management practice issues; risk assessment; and creating a treatment plan for higher risk patients. In addition, there will be commercially supported activities addressing a range of product, disease state, and medical information topics.
The PAINWeekEnd curriculum will be presented by a multidisciplinary faculty and is intended for frontline clinicians including physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and pharmacists.
