PAINWeekEnd in San Antonio, Texas, Offers CE/CME Education to Refine the Skills of Pain Management Practitioners

A Full Day of Pain Management for the Main Street Practitioner on Saturday, December 7; mingle with faculty and attendees, learn and earn up to 6.0 AMA PRA Category 1 credits for $129.

PAINWeekEnd on December 7 at the Marriott Plaza San Antonio, 555 South Alamo Street in Texas will be a timely program providing busy clinicians and allied healthcare practitioners with 6.0 hours of relevant, practical instruction in the management of chronic pain.

The Texas Medical Board requires all personnel who provide medical services to patients in a pain clinic setting to complete 10 hours of continuing medical education in pain management each year. The state has additionally sought to address the prescribing activity of all physicians in the arena of controlled substances, with revised prescription forms that became mandatory this year, and PMP Aware™, the state’s prescription drug monitoring program. PAINWeekEnd San Antonio will prepare attendees to comply with these and other stipulations, and to achieve better outcomes for their patients with pain. Course topics will explore the management of different pain syndromes, provide strategies for navigating the complex legal and regulatory landscape of pain practice, and convey the latest information on cutting edge topics in pain. At PAINWeekEnd San Antonio, Veteran PAINWeek and PAINWeekEnd faculty speaker Dr. David Glick will present Pain Pathways Made Simple, and Clinical Pearls: Unraveling the Secrets of Imaging Studies.

He commented, “Education is vitally important, not just for healthcare providers. We must engage patients, to ensure better safety and efficacy. Providing the patient with basic understanding of what to expect from their treatment goes a long way.” He concludes, “When practitioners are armed with patient engagement strategies, there is a greater tendency for patients to feel as if a burden has been lifted from their shoulders. They are able to work with their healthcare provider for better, more effective clinical outcomes.”

Other courses to be offered at PAINWeekEnd San Antonio include; Embrace Changes and Prevent Overdose: A Basic Blueprint for Legal Risk Mitigation and Response; Walking the Line: Opioid Dose De-escalation; Nonopioid Analgesics: Antidepressants, Adjuvant Therapies, and Muscle Relaxants; and Get Your Specimens in Order: Timely Use of Test Results.

Commercially supported activities—addressing a range of product, disease state, and medical information topics—will also be presented.
