American Pain Society Returns to PAINWeek 2018
Date:8/1/2018

The American Pain Society will return to the 2018 PAINWeek National Conference with an all-new course track exploring the latest evidence addressing measurement, mechanisms, and management of musculoskeletal (MSK) pain conditions. Despite improved understanding of the mechanisms of MSK, patient and provider satisfaction with treatment has not always kept pace, particularly with respect to fibromyalgia syndrome (FM) and chronic widespread pain. In Here a Pain, There a Pain, Everywhere a Pain Pain, the American Pain Society will consider the latest evidence on this condition which afflicts up to 8% of the general population, mostly women. Course presenter Roland Staud, MD, PhD, said, “I look forward to providing course participants with a summary of findings and recommendations for a comprehensive approach to the assessment and treatment of FM focusing on pain but also integrating fatigue, sleep abnormalities, and mood.”

Dr. Staud’s course will be offered as part of the American Pain Society’s full day track on Friday September 7. Also in the course track on Friday, Burel Goodin, PhD, will present Oh My Aching Back: Assessment and Management of Low Back Pain, addressing therapeutic strategies that healthcare providers can utilize to help minimize potentially stigmatizing responses to their patients’ condition, that often presents with is no clear association between pain and identifiable pathology of the spine or associated tissues. Dr. Goodin observed, “Previous research has shown that laypersons and providers alike are less inclined to help, feel less sympathy, dislike patients more, suspect deception, and attribute lower pain severity to patients whose pain does not have an objective basis in tissue pathology.” Rounding out the American Pain Society course track will be The Knee Bone’s Connected to the... Peripheral and Central Mechanisms in Knee Osteoarthritis, an examination of this leading cause of pain and disability in older adults, led by Roger Fillingim, PhD, and Exercise Your Demons: The Benefits of Exercise as a Treatment for Musculoskeletal Pain, presented by Marie Hoeger Bement, PT, PhD.

PAINWeek 2018 will feature a diverse curriculum in the following course concentrations: acute pain management, advanced practice practitioners, behavioral, integrative, and interventional pain management, chronic pain syndromes, medical/legal issues, neurology, pain and chemical dependency, physical therapy, palliative care, and pharmacotherapy. There will also be full-day programs presented by the the American Society of Pain Educators, the American Headache Society, and the International Pelvic Pain Society.
