A Course on Compassion: Empathy in the Face of Chronic Pain
Empathy is inherent in the human experience as it is an integral factor in the fact that we are social creatures. Most physicians and allied health professionals are particularly empathetic by nature and are drawn to the profession of medicine in order to “make a difference.” However, the rigors of training and practice can disconnect them from their compassionate self. In losing that connection to themselves it is difficult to find empathy for their patients, especially when they are angry. Anxiety and frustration are common emotions felt by patients in chronic pain. Maintaining a sense of connection and compassion in dealing with these patients is often challenging. The goal of the course is to increase the attendee’s awareness of how this lack of connection interferes with their own quality of life and ability to be effective healers. Compassion is a trait that must be nurtured over time. Afternoon workshops are intended to provide tools to reconnect the participants to their inherent empathy and original vision of why they entered the medical field.

Spine Management for the Primary Care Physician
This symposium is designed to enhance the skills and performance of those providers who treat patients with back pain. The sessions will focus on the role of primary care in spine care and how health-care reform will impact that role, discuss clinical presentations of common spinal disorders, examine what investigations and initial treatments make sense for spinal pain, and address the role of a multidisciplinary team in the treatment of spine patients.

June 17

Management of Neurological and Neurosurgical Patients
After completion of this course, participants will be better able to evaluate and manage acute care issues in hospitalized neurological and neurosurgical patients. This focused primer will provide a framework for recognition and management of commonly encountered problems in acute care neurology and neurosurgery.
