#ASRAFall23 Program Chair
On behalf of the ASRA Pain Medicine 2023 Fall Meeting Program Committee, I am excited to welcome you to New Orleans. The New Orleans Marriott is on NOLA's Canal Street, between the French Quarter and the Warehouse District. Just a short walk from Jackson Square and opportunities that can only be found in New Orleans, it is the perfect destination for the ASRA Pain Medicine 22nd Annual Pain Medicine Meeting, taking place November 10-11, 2023.
The theme of #ASRAFall23 is “Precision Pain Medicine.” The meeting will bring together more than 1,000 scientists, researchers, engineers, device developers, and healthcare providers from around the globe to share evidence-based knowledge about basic, translational, and clinical research; emerging technologies; and global health care trends to improve skills, outcomes, and access to patient care. We have orchestrated a dynamic array of plenary sessions from world experts, oral presentations, panel discussions, oral abstract presentations, and poster sessions covering the basic science, mechanisms of action, and clinical effectiveness of pain diagnostics and therapeutics.
We know that you are busy and need education and networking in a concise format. Particularly those working in private practice are giving up valuable patient care time to attend. That’s why this year’s main meeting will begin on Friday with a focus on key topics and hands-on learning, while still allowing plenty of time for networking and partnering with industry sponsors in the exhibit hall. We are committed to giving everyone a practical, educationally packed, extended weekend that will leave you inspired and excited to return to your patients back home.
Refresher courses will cover the future of precision pain medicine, chronic lower back pain, new science in neuromodulation, and pain medicine controversies. On Saturday, we’ll take a look at the future of rehabilitation, interventional treatments for musculoskeletal pain, elder pain patients, and translational bench to bedside applications. Interactive sessions will cover practice management and regenerative medicine, and we’ll again have our highly rated hands-on ultrasound and fluoroscopy workshops using live models and cadavers and covering a range of pain topics.
It takes the entire care team to help our patients, so as always, we welcome PAs, nurse practitioners, and clinical nurses with a full-day track of sessions. Plus, don’t miss our Problem-Based Learning Discussion lunch offering where you can select from a variety of hot topics, moderated by leading experts. This year’s program includes topics ranging from collaborating with lawyers to use of cannabis, cancer pain, and consulting with industry, plus much more.
We especially value the participation and contributions of the next generation of practitioners as well. Residents and fellows will find plenty of opportunities to network with seasoned pros. Additionally, the Thursday before (November 9th) will offer a “pre-meeting” program focusing exclusively on the educational needs of fellows and pain program directors.
And, as always, we welcome a diverse and inclusive array of scientific abstracts and ePosters, which give all attendees an opportunity to get involved and share the latest research findings.
We can’t wait to share this exciting program with you. We promise incredible networking opportunities to convey knowledge from multiple disciplines about current practice, future developments, and solutions for advanced pain management.
