PAINWeek 2016 Conference Opens Sept. 6 in Las Vegas
PAINWeek, the largest U.S. conference for front-line pain medicine practitioners, will hold its 10th annual meeting at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas on Sept. 6–10. The conference agenda features interactive presentations from leading pain medicine professionals, and is designed to improve both clinical practices and the treatment of patients in pain. A returning participant will be the American Academy of Pain Medicine (AAPM), a medical society representing physicians practicing in the pain medicine field, and whose activities include education, training, advocacy, and research in pain medicine. "AAPM is excited to present a cutting-edge PAINWeek program," Phil Saigh, executive director of AAPM, said in a press release. Because the practice of pain medicine is multi-disciplinary, AAPM members come from a variety of specialties, including anesthesiology, internal medicine, neurology, neurological surgery, orthopedic surgery, physiatry, and psychiatry. PAINWeek 2016 expects over 2,300 physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and other healthcare professionals to take part in its comprehensive course offerings, satellite events, and exhibits. In addition, more than 100 offerings will be part of Exhibit Hall, commencing with the traditional Welcome Reception on Wednesday, Sept. 7. Conference sessions also begin on Sept. 7, with scheduled presentations covering topics that include fibromyalgia, complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), and diabetic peripheral neuropathy. Others are "Evidence Based Medicine (EBM) Under Attack! Use, Misuse, and Abuse of Clinical Practice Guidelines," and the two-part "It Takes a Village: Caring for the Whole Patient From an Integrative Therapies Approach" and "With an Interdisciplinary Team (case studies)."
