We hope to announce the new date for this event, soon. The distinction between acute and chronic pain is often overlooked in clinical practice leading to 1) poor assessment; 2) inadequate patient and caregiver education about treatment, and 3) increased risk of adverse events related to analgesic medications including opioids. This course explores assessment, treatment, and management options to help physicians tailor individualized care plans for patients with acute and chronic pain. Case-based illustrations of pain diagnosis and treatment from nation-leading clinicians and researchers will help participants improve the way they treat prevalent conditions including osteoarthritis, low back pain, chronic neuropathic pain, and fibromyalgia that together constitute the most common reason to access the healthcare system. Faculty presentations will explore the evolution and application of the biopsychosocial model for the treatment of pain. The program examines updates to the evidence for older therapies and explores the rationale for new and emerging treatments for pain such as cannabinoids, antibody therapies for migraine and osteoarthritis, abuse-deterrent opioids, and the transformative technologies reshaping the field of neuromodulation.
