A Patient-Oriented Approach to Navigating the Transition from Acute to Chronic Pain: A Fundamental Course
Presented by Charles Argoff, MD; Burel Goodin, PhD; Theodore Price, PhD
Navigating the transition from acute to chronic pain is tricky, but you don’t have to tackle it alone. “A Patient-Oriented Approach to Navigating the Transition from Acute to Chronic Pain: A Fundamental Course” will help you bolster your foundation in pain science and pain management and enhance your professional practice.
In this half-day course, you will examine patient cases and explore the basic, translational, and clinical science behind the acute to chronic pain transition. During the course, you will
- explore the unique value of a multidisciplinary approach to pain management
- learn how basic science supports patient care
- learn psychological, neurophysiological, immune, and genetic factors that confer either risk or resilience for transitioning from acute to chronic pain
- apply “bench to bedside” translational topics to patient cases
- connect with peers from a variety of backgrounds in pain
- achieve a broader understanding of your field.
You’re only one course away from reinforcing the groundwork that will guide your development as a pain professional.
Check out the patient cases Burel Goodin will be discussing at the course.
