All healthcare professionals are welcome! This conference is specifically designed to meet the needs of an interdisciplinary healthcare community. Let's get together and learn from one another!

  • Help providers understand non-pharmacologic approaches to pain management, as well as non-opioid pharmacologic approaches.
  • Provide up-to-date information on and clarify the various rules and regulations.
  • Provide summary documents of the evidence for non-pharmacologic pain management modalities.
  • Discuss best practices in team-based care from an interdisciplinary panel.
What Will Happen:

In this day-long conference, attendees will:

  • Hear keynote addresses from integrative pain management experts from the VA, Department of Defense and civilian health care.
  • Network with colleagues across disciplines and meet new cross-referral partners in your geographic area.
  • Learn what others are doing to get integrative care covered.
  • Learn how to help patients unlearn pain.
  • Receive or observe a demo of acupuncture, massage, yoga, and/or biofeedback.
  • Choose from over 20 sessions to create a day that meets your needs...including sessions on helping patients' unlearn pain, nutritional pain management, non-opioid pharmaceuticals for pain, inter-disciplinary case reviews, the role of fascia in pain and pain management, pediatric pain, headaches, and more.
