Advancing the Treatment of Pain.  Together.

THE THIRD ANNUAL KAUAI PAIN CONFERENCE


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

In Spring, 2017, the Kauai Pain Conference will 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.
