Pain Management and Palliative Care 2020 provides the practicing primary care provider and specialty provider with clear, concise, and relevant presentations aimed at preparing all clinicians to successfully care for patients with serious illness and all forms of multimodal pain management needs. The Pain Medicine portion provides critical content in the area of pain assessment, spine related issues, safe opioid prescribing, headache management, and psychosocial aspects of pain. The Palliative Medicine portion is a newer offering after a successful and highly desired preconference to Pain Medicine. Over the last three years, this offering has provided highly reviewed and highly sought after content aimed at equipping clinicians with the skills needed to provide valued care for patients with serious, life-limiting illness from diagnosis to hospice, symptom management to advance care planning.

This multidisciplinary CME course provides synergistic content, relevant to primary care providers and specialty practitioners who care for patients with a serious illness and/or those patients experience pain. The course provides concise reviews, broader themed panels, breakout sessions and expert demonstrations across a range or relevant topics, including: spine care review, pharmacologic management with opioid and non-opioid strategies, updates on common chronic pain conditions, critical conversation skills, review of symptom management, quality of life interventions, CBT options, cancer considerations, delirium management, side-effect mitigation strategies.

Palliative Medicine in Clinical Practice (March 02 - 04, 2020)
Palliative Medicine in Clinical Practice will serve as a review and update on the most recent advances in the management of palliative medicine clinical scenarios that face internists, family practitioners, hospitalists, palliative medicine providers, hospice team members, oncologists and other subspecialists in their daily practices.

Learning Objectives:
• Formulate a strategy for communicating with patients and families with a serious illness about overall care goals.
