Pain Week – Yes, There is a Pain Week
This is Pain Week
Did you know this is “Pain Week?” I know, I know. . . maybe in your household every week is “Pain Week.” I get it. But officially, this is Pain Week 2012, when physicians meet from all over the world in Las Vegas to talk about chronic pain, treatment, causes and more.
September 5-8, 2012′s Pain Week will feature one of “the nation’s largest pain conference for frontline clinicians with an interest in pain management. Over 1500 physicians, nursing professionals, physician assistants, dentists, pharmacists, and psychologists are attending this year.” (According to painweek.org)
What do these doctors learn? Here is a fun display of their “feedback cards” complete with even Fred Flintstone, sharing the highlights.
The web site also states:
100+ hours of continuing medical education are presented in the following areas: behavioral pain management, complementary and alternative medicine, emergency medicine, health coaching, hypnosis, interventional pain management, medical/legal, neurology, pain and chemical dependency, pain and palliative care, pharmacology, regional pain syndromes, rheumatology, and sex and gender differences in pain management.
Find out more at their web site. It is interesting to hear (watch videos) and read doctor’s perspectives on those of us who live with daily chronic pain.
