Event Title
Midwest Pain Society Annual Conference

Event Date
November 9, 2018

Evidence based treatment of pain has never been as important to all healthcare providers as it is today. Pain is the #1 reason to seek medical care and a top complaint of the inpatient hospitalized population. The opioid abuse epidemic in the U.S. has continued to gain our attention, as has an awareness that opioids are not the long term answer for chronic pain management. An understanding of pain and non-opioid treatments are now critical for every healthcare provider in the country. I am reaching out to you directly to let you know about the 42nd Midwest Pain Society meeting will be held at the Northwestern Medicine Prentice Women's Hospital Conference Center on November 9-10, 2018. This multidisciplinary education program that ANY healthcare provider will find valuable. It is open to all who are interested. With nationally recognized speakers at a comfortable, modern venue in the middle of Chicago’s Gold Coast, this year’s 2-day conference will tackle the controversy of medical cannabis for treating chronic pain, the latest in cancer pain management and functional restoration, comprehensive treatment of pelvic pain, evaluation and treatment of headache, sexuality in chronic pain, and many other interesting and timely topics. More than 10 CE credits are available to attendees of this high value, high quality program. Go to www.midwestpainsociety.org to register.
