New techniques focus for pain care summit
Abu Dhabi, September 14, 2011
Advanced techniques, conventional care and innovative new approaches to the treatment of acute, chronic and cancer pain will form the agenda for an upcoming pain management summit in Abu Dhabi.
The second international Pain Management Conference will be hosted by the Anesthesia and Pain Management Department of Tawam Hospital on September 20 and 21 at the Fairmont Bab Al Bahr.
Prominent speakers from Johns Hopkins Medicine USA include Dr. Kayode Williams, who will present on the business aspects of pain management. Experts from the region, including Tawam, will also present.
“The conference provides the unique opportunity to foster strong partnerships with our colleagues in the region through sharing knowledge and experience in the Hopkins tradition,” said Dr Williams, MD, MBA, FFARCSI, John Hopkins University School of Medicine.
The conference will share the similar, interactive approach to learning which has become a characteristic of the Al Ain-based hospital’s conferences.
Post-conference workshops will provide hands-on experiences of the advanced pain treatment procedures taught during the lectures.
Marie Hanna, MD, director, Acute Pain Service, assistant residency program director, Anesthesiology and Critical Care Medicine, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, said: "This forum is an excellent opportunity for our scientists to speak about their unique multimodal approach to comprehensive pain management, and how to implement regional anesthesia and analgesia. We are confident that this conference will mark an important milestone in knowledge transfer and collaborative research projects between Baltimore and Al Ain."
Organisers at Tawam assert that participants will be able to use their conference knowledge of conventional and innovative treatment modalities to further develop effective approaches to treatment for chronic, acute and cancer-related pain.
“Pain is a worldwide epidemic,” says Michael Clark, MD, associate professor, director, Pain Treatment Program, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
“All types of pain deserve treatment and management by every health care discipline. This conference is designed to address the needs of our patients by helping practitioners to implement the latest and most innovative pain-relief strategies.”
“The response to last conference was overwhelmingly positive, with more than 600 attendees. We look forward to reporting sharing best practices and new research in pain management with our UAE colleagues for many years to come,” he added.
