In this upcoming Meeting, we have created a scientific program that presents a platform where knowledge and experience can be shared with world-renowned experts in the field of Pain Medicine.

Corresponding with the ASRA mission “Advancing the Science and Practice of Regional Anesthesia and Pain Medicine“, the Meeting will address the clinical and professional educational needs of physicians and scientists as well as ensuring excellence in patient care.

We are planning a great meeting, which will bring together national and international thought leaders to cover interventional and non-interventional pain management topics.  Sessions will include refresher courses, general sessions, parallel sessions, cadaver workshops, special session intensive workshops, problem-based learning discussions and e-Poster presentations.  In addition, special sessions are being developed on substance abuse management, disc degeneration (basic science and future therapies), practice management, evidence guidance for physical therapy for chronic pain states, implantable pain therapies including advances in neuromodulation, and controversies and challenges surrounding medical marijuana.  A representative from the United States Drug Enforcement Agency will present on the current status of opioid therapy and diversion. The offered workshops will cover high-end interventional techniques. Full day special sessions for both interventional pain medicine and interventional and diagnostic musculoskeletal ultrasound will be offered and taught by leading experts in the field of ultrasound.

We are also pleased to offer a comprehensive Physician Assistant and Nurse Practitioner educational program, which is being led by Dr. Bridget Calhoun, Chair of the Physician Assistant Program at Duquesne University.  The course will cover key knowledge requirements needed for all Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners caring for individuals suffering from chronic pain.

We look forward to welcoming you to the beautiful and mesmerizing city of San Francisco and hope that this Meeting will be a memorable experience for all of you and where you will be able to promote cooperation, develop friendships and support scientific collaborations.
