Target Audience

The educational design of this activity addresses the needs of frontline clinicians: physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and pharmacists involved in managing acute and chronic pain.

Statement of Need/Program Overview

Whether you're in a hospital or office-based practice, chronic pain patients are everywhere--and YOU are absorbing the burden of their care.

A just released report by the National Institutes of Health outlines positive steps that practitioners can take in response to the burgeoning problem of prescription medication abuse and to provide more effective pain management care to their patients. Key among these is access to pain education, and by participating in a PAINWeekEnd Conference, you'll improve your skills in medication risk evaluation and mitigation, in pain assessment and diagnosis, and in the delivery of individualized multimodal treatment.

The PAINWeekEnd agenda is purposely constructed for the busy clinician, delivering a full day of relevant, practical information, together with the opportunity for interaction and exchange with faculty and fellow attendees.

Pain Management for the Main Street Practitioner has been created to streamline the clutter of information on assessment, evolving guidelines, risk management, and changing reimbursement scenarios. Join us for a day of clinical and practice management CE/CME designed expressly for frontline clinicians. Participants can receive 6.0-12.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ as they expand their capabilities in the assessment, diagnosis, and management of chronic pain conditions.
