Continuing Medical Education – Academic Pain Day
Academic Pain Day is attended mainly by family physicians, who attend to learn current approaches to management of chronic pain.
Over the past five years our Academic Pain Days have been very successful, with approximately 80 physicians participating. These events have been held every year, starting in 2005, and have been achieving growing success. For example, the 2007 Academic Pain Day drew 65 participants from the Hamilton/Burlington catchment area, although there were some registrants from outside this area as well. Academic Pain Day 2008, held on the 5th of November, attracted 81 participants!
The format of this event consists of a full day course, including a light breakfast, followed by four expert speakers and a morning breakout session covering the morning topics, where participants have direct interaction with the experts. This will be followed by a lunch break, and an afternoon session consisting of another four speakers followed by an afternoon breakout session covering the afternoon topics, where participants will again have direct interaction with the respective experts. This format has been very well received in past CME events and we expect that this will also provide a special draw for local physicians and other health care professionals.
