18th Annual Pain Medicine Meeting
18th Annual Pain Medicine Meeting is organized by American Society of Regional Anesthesia and Pain Medicine (ASRA) and will be held from Nov 14 - 16, 2019 at New Orleans Marriott, New Orleans, Louisiana, United States of America.
The ASRA CME program provides educational activities to physicians, residents, fellows, and scientists. ASRA supports a multi-disciplinary and inter-professional approach to continuing education and patient care by also providing relevant education for other healthcare professionals not directly engaging in interventional regional anesthesia and/or pain medicine procedures. ASRA offers learning opportunities to the national and international healthcare community.
The American Society of Regional Anesthesia and Pain Medicine designates this live activity for a maximum of 23.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
PAs (Physicians Assistants): AAPA accepts certificates of participation for educational activities certified for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ from organizations accredited by ACCME or a recognized state medical society. Physician assistants may receive a maximum of 23.75 hours of Category 1 credit for completing this program.
Nurse Practitioners: The American Association of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) accepts AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ from organizations accredited by the ACCME. This activity has been approved for a maximum of 23.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™.
Registered Nurses: Regulations dictate that only physicians may earn CME credits, however, many state Boards of Registered Nursing accept AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ from organizations accredited by the ACCME. Attendees are responsible for confirming their specific board’s acceptance of ASRA-provided credits. This activity has been approved for a maximum of 23.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™.
The American Board of Anesthesiology MOCA
Part 2 Patient Safety CME: This activity contributes to the patient safety CME requirement for the CME component of the American Board of Anesthesiology’s (ABA) redesigned Maintenance of Certification in Anesthesiology™ program (MOCA), known as MOCA 2.0. Please consult the ABA website, www.theABA.org, for a list of all MOCA 2.0 requirements. Max. 13.75 credits.
The importance of pain medicine, including clinical care and research, has never been more apparent. From novel pharmaceuticals to cutting-edge interventional techniques to the opioid crisis, qualified pain medicine leaders possess knowledge and skills to lead their patients and health systems with evidence-informed and evidence-based medicine.
This year’s meeting program features national and international experts in the field of pain medicine. Highlighted sessions include novel opioid targets, alcohol use in chronic pain, advances in advanced interventional care, and treating patients with challenging conditions, such as fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, and headache.
Topics include radiofrequency ablation; updates on advanced interventional procedures; treating patients with challenging conditions, including fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, and headache; neuroscience; psychology; physical medicine and rehabilitation; practice management including coding/compliance, managing a variety pain practice settings, and issues pertaining to patient retention and risk management; hands-on ultrasound and fluoroscopy workshops including regenerative medicine, advanced interventional techniques (vertebroplasty, percutaneous spine decompression), and surgical practicums; and targeted interactive sessions on intrathecal therapies, professional development, diagnostic imaging and electrodiagnostics.
• Sessions on radiofrequency ablation, updates on advanced interventional procedures, and treating patients with challenging conditions, including fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, and headache.
• Presentations from internationally renowned basic science and clinical researchers from a diverse field of pain medicine specialties including neuroscience, psychology, physical medicine and rehabilitation, pain management, and neurology.
• Insights on “The Future of Pain Medicine.”
• ASA/ASRA practice management sessions designed for interactive discussion on coding/compliance, managing a variety pain practice settings, and issues pertaining to patient retention and risk management.
• Hands-on workshops in areas of ultrasound and fluoroscopy including radiofrequency ablation techniques, regenerative medicine, advanced interventional techniques (vertebroplasty, percutaneous spine decompression), and surgical practicums.
• Credits that apply toward ASRA’s Pain and MSK Interventional Ultrasound Certificate requirements.
• Dedicated PA/NP/Nursing program and targeted interactive sessions on intrathecal therapies, professional development, diagnostic imaging and electrodiagnostics, and the incredibly popular hands-on physical and neurological exam workshop.
• Abstract submissions, moderated ePoster sessions, PBLDs, interactive sessions, Data Blitz, award luncheon, and more.
After participating in this educational activity, participants should be able to:
• Review current basic science, clinical, and translational research in pain medicine and their role in the development/use of novel analgesics, targets for interventional techniques, and applicability to clinical practice.
• Evaluate new trends, techniques, therapies, and diagnostic procedures in pain management.
• Discuss current research and clinical issues in the opioid epidemic that impact the practice of pain medicine.
• Discuss how alcohol use and a variety of non-opioid analgesics may lead to complications in chronic pain patients.
• Develop a critical and balanced interpretation of current research and proposed new research methods on mechanisms underlying challenging pain syndromes in both adult and pediatric populations in order to offer patients the best evidence-based therapies.
• Address common clinical challenges in the management of acute and chronic pain, including those encountered in special populations.
• Improve awareness of safe practices and understand the role of risk mitigation for patient safety in pain medicine.
• Explore how pain medicine providers may impact the field outside of conventional clinical or research roles.
• Discuss important practice management issues in light of the always changing landscape of pain medicine practice.
• Recognize the value of interdisciplinary collaboration and providing comprehensive care in pain medicine.
• Identify the importance of physician and provider safety in pain clinics and ways to improve safety for all working in pain medicine clinics.
• Highlight the significance of wellness for both patients and physicians and explore potential personal adaptation strategies to address professional burnout and energize one’s practice.
• Pontificate on the future of pain medicine and how the specialty is stronger when collectively striving for equality, inclusivity, and strength in the engagement of all disciplines involved in the progress of pain medicine.
• Thoughtfully engage and assemble a valuable network of diverse colleagues active in the field of pain medicine.
