INTRATHECAL DRUG DELIVERY- ONLINE COURSE OCTOBER 2021

TARGET AUDIENCE

This course is designed for pain practitioners (pain specialists, anesthesiologists, neurosurgeons) utilizing intrathecal drug delivery for pain management both in cancer and non cancer patients. Also interesting for those who treat severe spasticty. 

Physicians attending the course should have at least 2 years of practice with ongoing use of Intrathecal drug delivery techniques in the treatment of chronic pain and/or spasticity patients, and with basic knowledge of spinal analgesia using intrathecal drug delivery.

OBJECTIVES

After participation in this educational meeting, participants should have an understanding of: 

1. Basic neuroanatomy related with the performance of intrathecal drug delivery

2. Current imaging and neurophysiology relevant for performing diagnosis and performing the intrathecal drug delivery for pain & spasticity treatment

3. Identify questions that need to be addressed to increase knowledge of intrathecal techniques used in chronic pain treatment

4. Current indications of Intrathecal drug delivery in chronic pain and recommendations for the evaluation and management of these pain conditions

5. Evidence-Based recommendations and strategies in the patient screening and follow-up, in the managemet of intrathecal drug delivery analgesia

6. Learning Case scenarios for the acquisition of critical assessment and management skills

INTERVENTIONAL PROCEDURES AND REGENERATIVE MEDICINE COURSE: COURSE 5th

AIM OF THE COURSE and TARGET AUDIENCE

The aim of this course is to provide the participant information and all possibilities pain medicine today provides for the management of patients with chronic pain. The correct diagnosis and appropriate therapeutic selection will be the keys to the success of treatment achieved.
This course is designed for Pain physicians or pain medicine fellows in training (pain specialists, anesthesiologists, neurosurgeons), interested in the practice of pain management, who seek the latest developments in interventional techniques, also seeking CME credit hours and introduction or review of proven interventional techniques, The participants of this course must have basic knowledge of pain medicine and practice of interventional procedures. The course serves to introduce new ways of working, consolidate previously acquired knowledge and teach new procedures to improve the professional capacity of the physician.

BY ATTENDING, PARTICIPANT WILL BE ABLE TO:

Physicians should be able to integrate multiple aspects of ultrasound and fluoroscopy in interventional pain management in treating their patients so that patients have better outcomes. Regenerative Medicine is a new portfolio of procedures, for its application alone, or in combination with interventional procedures, for an outcome improvement, in the treatment of the patient with chronic pain.
This course will promote a better understanding of the anatomy and pathophysiology, involved  in chronic pain, and critically review novel state-of-the-art interventional techniques for management of chronic pain. We offer the most updated education in pain medicine covering head upper, lower extremities, trunk and pelvic-perineal procedures.
Our faculty consists of internationally renowned  experts in the field of  interventional techniques.

OBJECTIVES

After participation in this educational meeting, participants should have an understanding of:
1.-Basic neuroanatomy  related with the performance of pain therapies
2.-Identify questions that need to be addressed to increase knowledge of interventional procedures used in pain treatment
3.-Perform craneo-facial and spinal procedures of the cervical, dorsal lumbar spine and pelvis.
4.-Define the characteristics of an ultrasound image and identify all landmarks of the cervical, lumbar and caudal.
5.-Define the principals and standards of an MSK ultrasound examination and  perform ultrasound guided MSK injections of the shoulder, trunk, hip and knee.
