Advances in Pain Management 2018


Program Overview

Couse Description:
This course is designed to provide primary care providers, specialists from different clinical areas including pain medicine, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, and pharmacists with a thorough, practical, and readily applied treatment update on various types of pain ranging from acute to chronic. Topics cover a broad range of conditions including chronic low back pain, migraine, neuropathic pain, fibromyalgia and centralized pain syndromes, cancer-related pain, osteoarthritis and other current issues in pain management such as risk management related to opioids.  The goal is to provide participants with the information they need to increase their knowledge base, further improve their skills and enhance pain patient care in the clinical setting.
Learning Objectives:
At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Understand the evidence and indications for novel non-opioid therapies (e.g. antibody therapies)  to treat chronic pain syndromes such as migraine and osteoarthritis
  • Develop multimodal treatment plans for chronic pain syndromes tailored to underlying pain mechanisms

  • Describe the potential benefits and risks of cannabinoid agonist therapy for chronic pain

  • Recognize key technological advances in the use of neuromodulation for the indication of chronic pain that may improve effectiveness and tolerability

  • Recognize risk factors for adverse events and poor outcomes with opioid therapy and screen candidates for this treatment appropriately

  • Incorporate cognitive behavioral approaches into routine chronic pain treatment

  • Explain abuse deterrent properties of different opioid analgesic formulations and choose among different therapeutic options in this class of medication

  • Discuss case-based examples of chronic pain treatment that illustrate successful integration of treatment strategies

  • Recognize how recent insights into the neurobiology of pain have changed our understanding of common syndromes such as chronic low back pain, osteoarthritis, and headache
