October 28 - October 29, 2016 DC1706 Cancer Survivorship for Clinicians

DC1706- Cancer Survivorship for Clinicians

With survivorship now recognized as a distinct phase of care in the cancer continuum, the focus turns to surveillance for, and management of, long-term and late effects that occur as a result of cancer and its treatment, as well as the health promotion and prevention of disease strategies that are particularly important for cancer survivors.

This conference, featuring speakers who are the leaders in the field of cancer survivorship, covers an important and increasingly relevant gap in the medical education of clinicians who care for cancer survivors

November 4 - November 5, 2016 MJ1705 9th Annual John D. Loeser Pain Conference: Moving Ahead With Pain Treatment in Primary Care
Register   Details

Pain is nearly ubiquitous in primary care, with an estimated 40% of older adults experiencing some form of chronic pain. The guidelines for providers and the regulations they are expected to follow have become more and more restrictive about the dosing and duration of opioid treatment as the evidence of potential harms has become clearer. At the same time, changes in insurance coverage have brought many more patients into primary care practices who have previously had poor access to care and may still have poor access to specialty care. The Loeser conference series is designed to fill the need for actionable, evidence-based pain care strategies among primary care providers, including physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants. 

Our topics for this conference will include issues of movement and physical therapy, overcoming resistance to treatment recommendations, management of pain with comorbid substance use and psychiatric disorders, and headache treatment. There will be a reduced focus on opioid treatments, primarily on the new Center for Disease Control guidelines and on weaning opioids. All presentations will be provided in a didactic format using Powerpoint slides to provide evidence-based, actionable information that can be used by the primary care provider without additional consultation of staffing. There will be question and answer sessions after each block of lectures.

Case Presentations: During the lunch hour, an optional case discussion session will be led by the speakers.
