PAINWeek® provides practical knowledge and tools for busy pain management practitioners to utilize in their daily practice.

The educational design of this activity addresses the needs of physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, pharmacists, psychologists, hospitalists, dentists, social workers, and podiatrists involved in the treatment of patients with pain.

“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

The primary objectives of the course are to enable delegates to:

  • Review the intent of the CDC guidelines
  • Describe primary and secondary pain generators that contribute to chronic pain
  • Describe the role of opioid-sparing techniques in anesthesia
  • Identify patients who may benefit from interventional procedures
  • List the specific items that should be included in a complete EHR when caring for chronic pain patients
  • Discuss integrative treatment approaches to chronic pain
  • Explain the specific pain pathways that can be acted upon by common pharmacotherapy classes
  • List non-opioid analgesics appropriate for treating acute and chronic pain
  • Summarize basic ethical principles as they apply to the assessment and management of patients with chronic pain
  • Discuss how to modify your medical marijuana authorization patterns based on legal realities and empirical data
  • Cite the clinical practice implication differences between urine drug screening (UDS) and urine drug tests (UDT)
