18th Annual Pain Management Symposium

Be an Einstein: Use the Brain to Treat Pain

Friday, September 26, 2014
Auditorium and Swedish Education and Conference Center

Seattle, Washington

 

The mind is a powerful tool that can play a large role in chronic pain management. Pain and the brain are interconnected; treating pain without addressing co-morbid problems and symptoms may lead to failure of the treatment plan. Patient attitudes towards success, behaviors that lead to addiction, mental health and pain neuroplasticity all affect the likelihood of effective management of a patient’s chronic pain.

This symposium will create a forum for clinicians to improve their pain management skills and apply a combination of multidisciplinary treatment options to improve patient outcomes. Attendees will see first-hand two examples of programs that are striving to provide pain patients with a comprehensive treatment and intervention plan to address their pain management needs. Attendees will learn how to apply these techniques to their own practice.  In addition to opioid and buprenorphine treatment plans, expert faculty will cover topics such as motivational interviewing, problematic patient behaviors, risk evaluation and patient monitoring to treat the mind and body of the pain patient. Sessions will include lectures, role play, interactive discussions and online supplemental materials.
