4th Annual Michael Stanton Hicks Pain Management & Regional Anesthesia Symposium
|Event Date/Time: Feb 04, 2002||End Date/Time: Feb 08, 2002|
Tremendous changes have affected the practice of pain management and regional anesthesia, not just in relation to advances in the pharmacologic and intervention aspects, but particularly in the manner by which these growing subspecialties are recognized by the health care system. We have created this symposium to promote a better understanding of the pathophysiology of acute and chronic pain and to enhance the knowledge regarding various chronic neuropathic pain conditions as well as the novel state of the art interventional and non-interventional techniques to diagnose and manage chronic pain. We have assembled an internationally renowned faculty to address current topics in acute, chronic, cancer pain management, and regional anesthesia/analgesia for post-operative pain control.
Each day will begin with the opportunity to interact with the faculty in informal discussion. On Monday - Friday, we offer an early afternoon hands-on optional cadaver course on various novel interventional pain management techniques. On Tuesday - Thursday, we also offer optional late afternoon "Cracker Barrel Workshops." On Wednesday, we invite you to join us for the luncheon, featuring our guest speaker Dr. Dolyes, who will address the current hot topic of pain medicine and addiction.
The symposium is intended for all practitioners and health care professionals who seek the latest developments in pain management, and to all anesthesia providers interested in regional anesthesia and pain management.

• Recognize the pathophysiology of neuropathic pain
• Identify new techniques and current advances in acute pain management
