6th Annual Summit on Balanced Pain Management
December 4, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm EST
Hosted by the Alliance for Balanced Pain Management, the summit will highlight the benefits of integrated pain care and the barriers patients face in accessing it, as well as ideas to begin removing those access challenges.
Hearing from a variety of perspectives, attendees will understand the role of balanced pain management in the effort to reduce opioid abuse and the challenges presented to patients, physicians, regulators and policymakers when considering how to implement a pain care strategy that may include pharmacological, non-pharmacological, and new medical device technologies as therapies. Panelists will also discuss what balanced pain management really means, and how it can be used to better treat patients with pain and improve patient safety.
Join patients, advocates, clinicians, payers and policymakers at the 6th Annual Summit on Balanced Pain Management to explore the value of patient-centered pain care.
