This activity is provided by Global Education Group.
The educational design of this activity addresses the needs of physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, pharmacists, psychologists, and social workers involved in the treatment of patients with pain.
PAINWeek® provides practical knowledge and tools for busy pain management practitioners to utilize in their daily practice.
"Chronic pain is on the doorstep of every healthcare provider on Main Street. It doesn't matter whether you're in Kentucky or Iowa or Ohio or California or New York, it is everywhere. To me someone who says to a patient 'I don't treat chronic pain because I'm not a pain management physician' is really saying there are 7,000 board certified pain clinicians in the United States. That's a fact. More or less 7,000 vs the number of people in the United States who suffer with chronic pain which, according to the Institute of Medicine, is somewhere around a 100 million people. If you do the math, there's not enough healthcare providers in that 7,000 to see patients 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year." Kevin L. Zacharoff, MD, FACIP, FACPE, FAAP
