2021 Annual Meeting

AAPM 2021: Effective Pain Care is Multimodal

The AAPM Annual Meeting is the must-attend meeting of the year for the entire pain care team. It brings together specialists of varying modalities and disciplines to address evidence-based, innovative best practices that treat the whole patient through multimodal and multidisciplinary approaches. AAPM 2021 will provide attendees with the skills and knowledge necessary to more fully incorporate multimodal pain care efficiently and effectively into their practices.

2020 has been an unprecedented year, with the COVID-19 pandemic impacting every aspect of our professional and personal lives. For us in the pain medicine field – this public health crisis came as we continue to combat the persisting public health problems of chronic pain and the opioid epidemic. 

I am proud of our specialty for rising to meet these challenges in order to continue delivering care through ingenuity, commitment, and grit. The pandemic has shown an even brighter light on why multimodal approaches are crucial to the treatment of acute and chronic pain, and no other medical specialty has as much command of these modalities as we do.

AAPM 2021 will offer us the much-needed opportunity to convene and share what we have learned and experienced this past year as we continue to reshape the delivery of pain care in a post-COVID-19 world.

-AAPM President, Ajay Wasan, MD MSc

AAPM 2021 will be held, this spring, in a virtual format, on dates still to be determined.

The meeting will highlight critical components of multidisciplinary care, including:

  • Academic and research
  • Acute pain/preventing transition to chronic pain
  • Basic & translational science
  • Cancer pain
  • Diagnostics and imaging sciences
  • Integrative and transdisciplinary care
  • Pain treatment for special patient populations
  • Pharmacotherapies
  • Physical and behavioral therapies
  • Practice management
  • Pro/con debate
  • Procedural and surgical interventions

Meeting Theme: Innovation & Technology in Pain Medicine

In 2016, an estimated 20.4% of U.S. adults had chronic pain and 8.0% of U.S. adults had high-impact chronic pain (according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), making it one of the most important public health problems of our time both in terms of the number of patients affected and the impact on healthcare costs. Pain medicine specialists know that employing a comprehensive, multidisciplinary, patient-centered approach to pain management means staying abreast of the latest and most up to date complementary and integrative pain management therapies, interventional therapies, neuromodulation, rehabilitative therapies, medical therapies, and the latest technical innovations, especially while we as a specialty and a nation continue to grapple with the opioid crisis. Meeting sessions will focus on the theme Innovation & Technology in Pain Medicine and will address topics such as:

  • Procedural and surgical pain management interventions, applying image-guided, minimally invasive procedures to diagnose and treat pain conditions
  • Complementary and integrative mechanisms for treating pain
  • Non-pharmacological pain management treatments, including physical and behavioral therapies
  • Interactive patient care technologies to better manage pain expectations and perceptions, including a focus on caring for special populations, such as cancer patients, adolescents, and veterans
  • Bringing research into practice and the latest basic and translational science in the field of pain
  • Practice management tips and tools regarding regulatory, fiscal, and legal/ethical issues.
