The NYSIPP & NJSIPP Pain Medicine Symposium was established in 2010 with the primary objectives of educating health care professionals to promote the development and practice of safe, high quality, cost effective interventional pain management techniques for the diagnosis and treatment of pain and related disorders, and to insure patient access to these interventions. Our scientific program will provide state-of-the-art information on advanced pain management techniques, pharmacology, neurostimulation, vertebroplasty, kyphoplasty, discography and intradiscal procedures, radiofrequency, peripheral nerve stimulation, intrathecal therapy, percutaneous facet fusion and sacroplasty among others. This course will offer a full day hands on cadaver and ultrasound course, incorporating didactic lectures with the hands-on practice for improved technique and patient outcomes for interventional procedures. Additionally, on Saturday, November 10, we will be offering a full day breakout session on the safe utilization of opioid medication specifically geared for primary care and conventional medical management physicians who require specific training in the prescribing and utilization of opioids and controlled substances.

Program Goal and Objectives:

The goal of this activity is to disseminate best practices in the assessment, diagnosis, treatment and management of patients with pain.

At the completion of this activity, participants should be better prepared to:

• Recognize and evaluate pain, description of pain, and pain markers

• Interpret new Federal Regulations to assist in implementing standards of care and to assist in patient compliance

• Achieve a greater understanding of best practices and available guidelines on new techniques, agents and therapies for patients.
