PAINWeek—the largest US pain conference for frontline practitioners will present over 120 CE/CME hours of pain management education enabling practitioners to earn over 40 hours of credit.
“The intersection of education and managing chronic pain is in clinical practicality. PAINWeek continues to be the meeting to attend for frontline practitioners because of its ability to provide relevant and meaningful education that impacts patient care in a positive way,” says senior PAINWeek faculty member Kevin L. Zacharoff, MD, FACIP, FACPE, FAAP.
Convening at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas for its 9th year on September 8-12, PAINWeek 2015 expects to welcome over 2000 physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and other healthcare professionals for a comprehensive program of course offerings, satellite events, and exhibits.
