Kauaʻi Pain Conference ʻOhana
Welcome to the Kauaʻi Pain Conference ʻohana. ʻOhana means “family” in the Hawaiian islands.
Many attendees at KPC return year after year to learn and share best practices in pain management. Each year, Neurovations Education works hard to find the best and brightest minds in the fields of pain management, neuroscience, and public health policy. For those of you who are joining KPC for the first time, we welcome you as a community or family member with a shared mission – to bring hope to those with chronic pain.
In July of 2014, I opened the Spine and Pain Center of Kaua’i to fill an unmet need for conservative and interventional pain care on our beautiful island. Since then, the practice has grown dramatically and we’re so grateful for the confidence of our healthcare colleagues and the Kaua’i community.
Now more than ever it is important that we, as clinicians, are equipped with the most up to date information to provide innovative, effective, compassionate treatment options for our patients.
The comorbidity, co-prescribing, and co-occurrence of disability among persons with chronic pain create greater challenges in managing each condition and reducing impact. Pain cannot be managed in isolation. (Wallace, 2004)
The Kaua’i Pain Conference curriculum addresses biopsychosocial dimensions of pain:
- bio – with advances in the basic neuroscience processes of pain
- psychological – how the constellation of cognitive processes interacts with neurological signals to influence health and wellness
- social – how societal factors influence patient well-being and clinical practice
The Kaua’i Pain Conference is where health care providers, policy makers, administrators and insurers develop interprofessional solutions to the complex challenges of pain management.
Designed for providers of all specialties to improve their understanding of the etiology, assessment, and treatment of pain.
