2018 Pain Medicine Best Practices: Integrative Solutions for Critical Challenges

About the Pain Medicine Best Practices: Integrative Solutions for Critical Challenges On-Demand Recordings

Many healthcare professionals do not feel adequately trained to evaluate and treat the patient in pain. The Pain Medicine Best Practices: Integrative Solutions for Critical Challenges Preconference was designed for pain specialists and subspecialists, primary care providers, and trainees interested in learning how to optimize the management of chronic pain with opioid analgesics and non-opioid therapies.
These recordings provide timely and practical information for pain management delivered through didactic lectures and case studies. Attendees at the live meeting brought their toughest clinical dilemmas and joined expert faculty to examine compelling challenges facing pain medicine practitioners today as well as in the coming decades. Together, faculty and attendees explored current evidence, best practices, and emerging therapies to develop practical and integrative solutions.

Target Audience
Clinicians treating patients in pain are invited to join leading experts in pain medicine in viewing recordings from the Pain Medicine Best Practices: Integrative Solutions for Critical Challenges On-Demand program previously recorded during the AAPM 34th Annual Meeting. The program has been designed by a multidisciplinary, multimodal committee of experts at the forefront of pain medicine practice. Its primary audience is physicians whose scope of practice is targeted at the multidisciplinary practice of pain medicine, and its secondary audience of non-physician healthcare clinicians includes nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, physical therapists, psychologists, and pharmacists who are part of the multidisciplinary pain management team.

Learning Objectives
After watching these on-demand non-CME recordings, participants should be better able to:

  • Implement evidence-based treatment for pain.
  • Describe how to prescribe opioids for chronic pain in rational and responsible manner.
  • Examine non-opioid treatment modalities.

Faculty/Planner Disclosures & Policy

AAPM plans and implements educational activities in accordance with ACCME which calls on accredited providers to offer educational activities that address physicians’ real-world practice needs, whether their scope of practice is in clinical care, research, health care administration, or other areas of medicine. AAPM's educational programs are designed to change either physicians’ competence, by teaching them strategies for translating new knowledge into action, or physicians’ performance (what they actually do in practice), or patient outcomes. AAPM continually evaluates its programs’ effectiveness in achieving these goals.

All program faculty and planners are required to disclose all financial relationships they may have or have had within the last 12 months with commercial interests whose products or services are related to the subject matter of the presentation. Any real or apparent conflicts of interest are resolved prior to the presentation. All confirmed faculty disclosure is made available to participants prior to the activity. Faculty are also expected to disclose this information to the audience both verbally and in print (slide presentation) at the beginning of a presentation. Faculty members must also inform learners if any unlabeled uses of products regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration will be discussed.
