MONTCLAIR, N.J., June 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- There are 116 million people in pain. There are 4,000 pain specialists. That's 29,000 patients per pain specialist. There are simply not enough pain specialists to go around.

What can frontline practitioners do to meet the challenges of this growing public health issue? Attend PAINWeekEnd Chicago!

The 2014 PAINWeekEnd Regional Conference convenes on Saturday, June 28, in Chicago at the Gleacher Center at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business. Now entering its 4th year, PAINWeekEnd Regional Conferences offer a concentrated day of continuing education in pain management designed expressly for frontline practitioners.

PAINWeekEnd attendees can receive 6.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits as they enhance their capabilities in the assessment, diagnosis, and management of chronic pain conditions. Courses to be offered at PAINWeekEnd Chicago cover a broad range of pain conditions and practice considerations. Attendees will learn about management of osteoarthritis pain; rational polypharmacy; musculoskeletal pain in women; myofascial pain; management of pain from whiplash; and the role of adjuvants and co-analgesics in pain therapy.

Commenting on the PAINWeekEnd Series, Debra Weiner, Aventine Managing Partner and Director of Program Development noted, "The dual public health crises of inadequate pain management and the challenges of balancing access to medication with responsible prescribing continue to be felt by primary care practices and their patients. The imbalance between the number of patients with pain and the number of available pain specialists is familiar to us all, and these PAINWeekEnd Conferences are a cost- and time-effective way for primary care clinicians to augment their skills in this critical arena."

Chris Herndon, PharmD, of the PAINWeekEnd Regional Conference series, added "As a faculty participant in the PAINWeek National Conference in the past, I can affirm the value of the experience for primary care practitioners who are concerned with pain management.  I look forward to presenting at PAINWeekEnd Chicago, and I urge area clinicians to attend."

PAINWeekEnd Chicago will be held on Saturday, June 28, at the Gleacher Center at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business at 450 North Cityfront Plaza Drive.

The PAINWeekEnd curriculum will be presented by a multidisciplinary faculty and is intended for frontline clinicians including physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and pharmacists. In addition, there will be commercially supported activities, both certified and noncertified, addressing a range of product, disease state, and medical information topics.
