Basics of Chronic Pain Management

A Pre-Conference Symposium at the 2018 CAFP Annual Summit

A Growing Dilemma

Nearly 50 million Americans suffer from chronic pain. As the population ages, that number is likely to increase. Many patients seek help not from pain specialists, but from primary care physicians or other healthcare professionals.

Join Us April 12th at Cheyenne Mountain Resort

Join CPEP and the Colorado Academy of Family Physicians in Colorado Springs for a one-day seminar that will help you treat this growing population of patients with safety and confidence. This course is designed for clinicians who manage or encounter patients with chronic pain. It is not intended for pain management specialists.

  • Non-pharmacologic treatment, including complementary and alternative therapies
  • Interventional pain management: indications and options
