Boston, Massachusetts - The Academy of Integrative Pain Management (AIPM) has announced its inaugural Global Pain Clinician Summit 2018: Transforming How We Care for People with Pain to take place at the Joseph B. Martin Conference Center at Harvard Medical Center* in Boston, Massachusetts, November 9-10, 2018.
“We’ve listened to the needs of today's busy clinicians, and are excited to announce a new format for our Annual Meetings that is more contemporary and relevant for everyone involved, attendees and commercial supporters alike,” said Bob Twillman, PhD, AIPM’s Executive Director. “Our new format means clinicians can spend less time away from patients, and more time learning practical techniques and connecting with one another.”
The Global Pain Clinician Summit will be more focused, smaller in size, and shorter in length than previous Annual Meetings. The location has changed from a 5-star hotel to one of the most revered academic institutions in the world. “Choosing Joseph B. Martin Conference Center at Harvard Medical Center* reinforces our emphasis on research and evidence for integrative pain management, and our desire for the meeting to be as affordable and easy to attend as possible,” Twillman said.
The agenda for the Summit focuses on the biggest issues facing today’s pain clinicians, including opioid misuse, barriers to integrative pain management, digital health, medical marijuana and more. It will also include a full day dedicated to the Certificate in Nutritional Pain Management Program (CNPM), which was sold out at last year’s annual meeting. There will be many opportunities throughout the event for pain clinicians to meet each other, share best practices and discuss practice challenges.
All pain care professionals are encouraged to attend, and attendees can earn 12+ CE/CME. It will be accredited for physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and psychologists, and a certificate of attendance will be available for all attendees.
“With 100 million people experiencing chronic pain in the U.S., and the misuse of opioids an ever-present threat, education about integrative methods and safe prescribing are needed now more than ever.”
