Montclair, NJ (PRWEB) June 01, 2012

The American Society of Pain Educators (ASPE) will present the highly popular Pain Educators Forum (PEF) at PAINWeek 2012, the National Conference on Pain for Frontline Practitioners. The PEF is a dedicated track held as part of the conference curriculum that focuses on the technique and content of pain education.

Mary Lynn McPherson, PharmD, BCPS, CPE, FASPE, and President of the ASPE Board of Directors remarked “With over 100 million Americans suffering the often devastating consequences of chronic pain every day, it is a moral imperative that every healthcare practitioner in the country possesses a high level of proficiency in the management of this patient population. This requires personal dedication to lifelong learning in pain management, and a commitment to excellence in educating patients, other healthcare practitioners, payers, and the general public. We have the tools to manage pain, now we just need to assure that everyone know how best to use them. With competing priorities being the rule instead of the exception, savvy practitioners know that participation at PAINWeek is an incredible value both financially, and more-importantly, time-wise. PAINWeek is an investment in your career, and your patients' lives that you can't afford to miss!"

Preparing frontline practitioners to provide more effective pain management is the overarching mission of PAINWeek, now entering its 6th consecutive year, and the largest national conference on pain. In 2011, PAINWeek welcomed over 1500 healthcare practitioners from a variety of medical specialties, compelling evidence of the significant interest in pain management by frontline clinicians.For 2012, PAINWeek is preparing significant enhancements to its course agenda, including new course tracks on the management of pain conditions often associated with diabetes, and on pain management approaches and insights from the Veterans Health Administration.These will augment the annual offering of approximately 14 different tracks in the PAINWeek curriculum, the most comprehensive program of certified pain management education available.
