PAINWeek 2022

September 6-9

This activity is provided by Global Education Group.

This educational activity is partially supported by an educational grant from GlaxoSmithKline.

Target Audience

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

Statement of Need/Program Overview

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

Educational Need

"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

Learning Objectives

After attending PAINWeek, learners should be better able to:

  • Explain basic diagnostic procedures to identify acute and chronic pain conditions
  • Describe how marginalized or minority patients present with higher pain prevalence rates and experience less adequate assessment, treatment, and favorable outcomes compared to their majority counterparts
  • Review the risk factors and natural history of common entrapment neuropathies
  • Identify the concerns and risks associate with undisposed opioids
  • Review practical strategies for establishing a Transitional Pain Service
  • Describe a patient-centered approach to chronic pain management
  • Cite current medical/legal issues impacting pain management
  • Identify the potential to positively impact patient care using interactive case discussions
