Meeting Theme

Managing Acute & High-Impact Chronic Pain Through Multidisciplinary Care

A stakeholders meeting to improve care and optimize patient outcomes

The fundamentals of multidisciplinary pain management have been the gold standard for pain care and have been promoted by AAPM since it was established over 30 years ago with a mission of “advancing the comprehensive care of patients with pain through promotion of the best clinical practices, research, advocacy, and continuing medical education.”

For 2018, AAPM President Steven Stanos, DO, in collaboration with the Program Committee, has selected Managing Acute & High-Impact Chronic Pain through Multidisciplinary Care as the AAPM 34th Annual Meeting theme.

The meeting will be designed to provide key stakeholders – especially physicians and members of their treatment teams – with the skills and knowledge necessary to more fully incorporate multidisciplinary care into their practices in order to improve care and optimize patient outcomes. Payer and other stakeholders’ perspectives will also be included.

The meeting will highlight critical components of multidisciplinary care, including:

  • Team based interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary, and stepped care models of treatment
  • Integrating state of the art interventional procedures within a comprehensive pain management treatment plan (i.e. spine injection procedures, peripheral nerve injections, neuromodulation)
  • Physical and occupational therapies
  • Non-opioid and opioid pharmacotherapy, including addiction and substance abuse treatment
  • Behavioral health interventions (i.e. cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness based stress reduction)
  • Exercise, patient education, and wellness regimens
  • Musculoskeletal care (i.e. soft tissue injections, ultrasound guided procedures)
  • Comprehensive physical and psychosocial patient assessments
  • Practice guidelines and updates on the National Pain Strategy.

Today, as millions of Americans suffer from acute and high-impact chronic pain – and while the prescription of analgesics to treat pain continues to decline in response to the opioid epidemic – it is more important than ever to re-engage pain clinicians, the public, and concerned stakeholders with the importance of delivering the right care to patients suffering from pain. Therefore, a primary educational objective of the AAPM 34th Annual Meeting is to raise awareness about the wide range of treatment therapies available to help patients suffering from pain and pain-related psychosocial dysfunction regain their quality of life.

Exhibitor Information:

The AAPM Annual Meeting is the leading pain meeting that brings together the leading physicians for networking, engagement, collaboration and overall great learning experience.

We anticipate an audience of 1,000 physicians from the United States in Vancouver who specialize in pain medicine, plus a growing number of primary care physicians. CSS are part of the official independent CME and non-CME Program in conjunction with the AAPM Annual Meeting and Preconferences. Independent CME and non-CME CSS are the exclusive venue for education programs supported by grants from industry during dedicated time slots held during breakfast and lunch hours.

About AAPM:

Founded in 1983 as the American Academy of Algology, the American Academy of Pain Medicine (AAPM) has evolved as the primary organization for physicians practicing the specialty of Pain Medicine in the United States.

As the practice of Pain Medicine has grown, a defined body of knowledge and scope of practice have emerged, and today, Pain Medicine is acknowledged as a discrete discipline by the American Medical Association (AMA). AAPM is the first pain organization with representation in the AMA House of Delegates.
