Effective Pain Management Requires an Interdisciplinary Approach
Date:9/26/2007

clinicians about pain from an interdisciplinary perspective, will address the undertreatment of pain as well as new ways to treat pain at its 18th Annual Clinical Meeting, from September 27-30, 2007, at the Red Rock Resort, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Called, "Knowledge, Compassion, and Care," this meeting will bring together clinicians from a wide variety of disciplines and medical traditions (Eastern and Western) to learn about current diagnostic methods, treatment strategies, and research in pain management. The meeting will feature world- renowned speakers, and include presentations on the pharmacological management of pain, behavioral therapies, and psychosocial aspects of pain. The meeting will also include discussion about pain management from an ethical perspective.

"Pain is arguably America's number one public health problem. Yet most pain goes untreated or is undertreated," says Lennie Duensing, Executive Director of the Academy. "Millions of Americans suffer with pain that is debilitating and prevents them from leading normal lives because most healthcare professionals have not been educated about how to treat pain. Another reason is that effective pain management most often requires interdisciplinary treatment, which most patients do not receive. To complicate things more, many healthcare professionals are now fearful about prescribing opioids - powerful, but highly effective, medications that are often abused. At this unique meeting, clinicians will learn together and network to discover ways to provide quality care for people with chronic pain."

Highlights of the Academy's meeting include the following speakers, symposia, and presentations:

Ethics Symposium: Ethical Issues in the Treatment of Chronic Nonmalignant Pain This symposium will address discrimination (racial, class, ethnic, gender) in treating pain as well as the legal side of treating pain and the responsibility of the physician. Featured speakers include:
