Event Overview
Welcome message:

Dear colleagues,

Welcome to the 42nd Annual Regional Anesthesiology and Acute Pain Medicine Meeting taking place April 6-8, 2017, in eclectic San Francisco, California! Our program this year was designed from the ground-up, with the help of your input and in response to the changing demands of our evolving specialty. There is something for everyone: experts, novices, clinicians, and administrators. From PEC blocks to PoCUS, from practice management to cannabinoid pharmacotherapy, we have broadened our scope and sharpened our focus on what matters most to provide you with the necessary tools to succeed in the current healthcare environment.

So, what’s different? A fancier axillary block or another way to numb the ankle? We have moved beyond the technical aspects of our specialty to train you as acute pain leaders. Our Practice Management Portfolio will teach you how to develop, manage, and grow your acute pain practice by mastering CMS compliance and maximizing reimbursement. What’s the point of learning new blocks if you can’t bill for them later? How can you negotiate contract terms if you don’t understand the economics of the service you want to provide?

To complement the business side, we have broadened our technical scope to include bedside point-of-care ultrasonography (PoCUS) and increased our course offerings in advanced block techniques. The visionaries who first described the PEC, serratus plane, iPACK, quadratum lumbarum, and transverse oblique lumbar plexus blocks were invited as faculty for our workshops. In order to maximize your exposure and learning, all sessions are more interactive than ever.

Finally, we have also incorporated more chronic pain medical management sessions in response to our growing role as inpatient pain physicians and key players in ERAS models (enhanced recovery after surgery). From methadone pharmacotherapy to major joint clinical pathways, you will learn what it takes to succeed as a holistic perioperative pain expert.

If you only attend one meeting this year, make it this one. Get all the training, MOCA 2.0 CMEs, and networking you need in one event at a beautiful venue, in an exciting city, and with on-site wine tastings to experience some of the local wine country flavors.

Kind regards,

Andres Missair, MD, EDRA

Chair, Scientific/Education Planning Committee 2017
