Preconference Workshop

Cancer Pain Clinical Skills Workshop. 1-5 pm, The Windsor Court Hotel, Windsor Room

This 4 hour hands-on workshop will help participants understand patient selection, management, and complication avoidance and management for radiosurgery, radiofrequency tumor ablation, intrathecal drug delivery, and neurostimulation. The nuances of patient selection will be explored for each modality by the faculty, with illustrated case discussions.  

Participants will rotate between interactive case stations, where the teaching cases are continued as case illustrations continue. The “patients” treated by faculty return with new management issues to be interactively solved by the participant with faculty guidance, including decisions for crossover to other treatment modalities.  Specific technology nuances will be addressed such as intrathecal polypharmacy, the use of ziconatide vs. opiates, peripheral vs. spinal cord stimulation, and novel waveforms.
