Hawai’i’s Premier CME Pain Meeting

Pain affects more lives than those affected by heart disease, cancer, and diabetes combined.

The  appropriate assessment and treatment of pain has a far-reaching impact on morbidity, mortality, quality of life, and economics — of individuals, communities, and across the healthcare system.

The Kaua’i Pain Conference offers a unique forum for sharing advances and standards in pain management and treatment for colleagues in all disciplines of medicine, with exceptional content presented by national leaders in pain medicine, patient safety, community health, and the regulatory environment.



SpectrumCare designates this live activity for a maximum of 13.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

SpectrumCare is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.


Approved for ABA MOCA 2.0®: Maintenance of Certification in Anesthesiology™ Program, Medical Knowledge & Patient Safety CME. Attend the conference, participate in the education, and we’ll send your MOC CME directly to the ABA on your behalf.
