— MARCH 2-3, 2018 - MARCH 1-2, 2019 —
Pain affects more lives than those affected by heart disease, cancer, and diabetes combined.
The appropriate assessment and treatment of pain has a far-reaching impact on morbidity, mortality, quality of life, and economics — of individuals, communities, and across the healthcare system. The Kauai Pain Conference offers a unique forum for sharing advances and standards in pain management and treatment for colleagues in ALL disciplines of medicine, with exceptional content presented by national leaders in pain medicine, patient safety, community health, and the regulatory environment.
