The APS track is offered on Friday, September 5, beginning with Dr. Fillingim’s presentation on the case for pain as a women’s health issue, including a review of existing evidence that pain manifests differently in women than men. The remaining presentations in the APS track will provide evidence-base information regarding several different pain conditions that are exclusive to women. Dr. Georgine Lamvu will discuss clinical profiles and their implications for treatment among women with vulvodynia. Dr. Jennifer Hah will discuss biopsychosocial factors in chronic pelvic pain, and Dr. Rob Edwards will discuss risk factors for chronic pain after treatment for breast cancer.
Join Dr. Fillingim and his colleagues as part of your educational experience at PAINWeek 2014!
