— MARCH 18-19, 2016 —
Advancing the Treatment of Pain.  Together.

 
 

THIS YEAR AT THE KAUAI PAIN CONFERENCE


Pain affects more lives than those affected by heart disease, cancer, and diabetes combined.

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. 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. 

We invite physicians, nurses, pharmacists, psychologists and other health care professionals to join us for current information about the diagnosis, treatment, and management of acute and chronic pain and associated diseases. Generalists and specialists will benefit from a wide range of topics and faculty presenting basic, translational and treatment advancements.
