18ME048 - 4th Annual Cancer Pain Research Consortium Conference: Journey through Cancer: Diagnosis, Treatment and Living

Description

As malignancies are diagnosed earlier and anti-cancer treatments have continued to succeed, more people are surviving beyond their cancer diagnoses, many years and decades in fact. Putting cancer into the background and rebuilding life is the goal of our research and practice efforts. We strive to overcome the battles of pain, at the time of diagnosis and during anti-cancer treatment, to help patients thrive in their post-morbid life. This year’s meeting will build on the foundation of best practices for cancer pain and inspire multispecialty collaboration for research and practice.

The Pre-Conference has two options for attendance:
-Cancer Pain Skills Lab will include both didactic and hands-on training in the clinical use of intrathecal drug delivery, neurostimulation, RF tumor ablation and radiosurgery
OR
-Workshops on "Cancer Pain Practice - How to Run Your Practice" or "How to Run a Research Study"

For the Main Conference, participants can choose to attend both days or attend only one day.


This conference will be held at the Windsor Court Hotel, 300 Gravier Street, New Orleans, LA 70130.

Two room blocks are available under the name "4th Annual Cancer Pain Research Consortium".
