Tremendous changes have affected the practice of pain management and regional anesthesia, particularly in relation to advances in pharmacologic and intervention aspects. Also, the goal of this symposium is 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 to critically review the novel state-of-the-art interventional and noninterventional techniques in diagnosis and management of chronic pain, cancer pain, and headache. We have assembled a nationally and internationally renowned faculty to address current topics in acute and chronic pain management and regional anesthesia.
Each day will begin with the opportunity to interact with the faculty in informal discussion during the continental breakfast. On Saturday through Tuesday, we offer an afternoon optional cadaver workshop on various novel interventional pain management techniques. On Saturday, we will offer a live ultrasound guided workshop covering upper and lower extremities, neck, and lumbar spine procedures. On Sunday through Tuesday, we offer optional late afternoon problem-based learning discussions. We also invite you to the Reception on Saturday evening, which promises to be a fantastic social gathering opportunity for attendees, their families, friends, and faculty.
Fees include electronic syllabus (flash drive), continental breakfast, and refreshment breaks. Payment must be received prior to admittance to the Symposium. Purchase orders are not accepted.
