Physicians and other members of the medical care team will understand how to treat the whole patient and not just one of their symptoms.
Learning Format and Methodologies
There will be three sessions each covering one common patient archetype. The presenters will review the patient’s current symptoms and the patient’s history. Each case presentation will be followed with 4 mini-lectures on different topics relevant to the successful treatment of that patient. The day will end with a keynote lecture on the future of pain management and an extended section for audience question and answer.
