The Other Opioid Crisis:
Faculty Kevin L. Zacharoff, MD, FACIP, FACPE, FAAP
There is a significant amount of media, political, and public attention paid to the opioid crisis/opioid epidemic in the United States today. With the seemingly ever-increasing number of opioid-related overdoses and fatalities, there has been a feverish push by stakeholders to diminish the amount of opioids prescribed in order to help stem these worrisome trends. Unfortunately, there may be a lack of focus regarding the true definition and characterization of the opioid epidemic. There may also be a rush to judgment about the role of appropriately prescribed opioid analgesics in the addiction crisis we face today as well. This presentation will discuss the roles and statistics of both prescription and illicit opioids (namely heroin and fentanyl) in today’s “opioid overdose epidemic” with the intention of clarifying important differences and similarities between these competing epidemics including concerns and clinical considerations specific to each of them. Additionally, this program will examine and identify how these medications and drugs share potentially tragic adverse effect profiles in many cases. However, it is important for clinicians to make sure that appropriate chronic pain patients that may be candidates for opioid analgesic therapy aren’t penalized, and still get the treatment that they deserve.

Fundamentals of Neuromodulation
Faculty Peter G. Pryzbylkowski, MD
Neuromodulation, including neurostimulation and intraspinal analgesic therapies, is commonly utilized in pain management. Most patients who have spinal cord stimulators (SCS) implanted for chronic pain have long standing and complex pain concerns. In addition to the index pain being targeted for SCS, often there are psychological comorbidities, physical deconditioning, ongoing opioid pain medication use, and secondary pain problems. In order to truly optimize the desired outcomes for these patients, each of these areas need to be addressed. This session will focus on the latest medical, behavioral, and regenerative medicine approaches to help optimize neuromodulation outcomes and explore patient identification strategies to optimize treatment outcomes when considering such approaches.

CE/CME and Accreditation
This activity is provided by Global Education Group.
The educational design of this activity addresses the needs of frontline clinicians: physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and pharmacists involved in managing acute and chronic pain.
Statement of Need/Program Overview
Whether you're in a hospital or office-based practice, chronic pain patients are everywhere—and YOU are absorbing the burden of their care.
A just released report by the National Institutes of Health outlines positive steps that practitioners can take in response to the burgeoning problem of prescription medication abuse and to provide more effective pain management care to their patients. Key among these is access to pain education, and by participating in a PAINWeek Premiere Conference, you'll improve your skills in medication risk evaluation and mitigation, in pain assessment and diagnosis, and in the delivery of individualized multimodal treatment.
The Premiere agenda is purposely constructed for the busy clinician, delivering a full day of relevant, practical information, together with the opportunity for interaction and exchange with faculty and fellow attendees.
Pain Management for the Main Street Practitioner has been created to streamline the clutter of information on assessment, evolving guidelines, risk management, and changing reimbursement scenarios. Join us for a day of clinical and practice management CE/CME designed expressly for frontline clinicians. Participants can receive 2.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ as they expand their capabilities in the assessment, diagnosis, and management of chronic pain conditions.
