This session will focus on new studies on Spinal Cord Stimulation, and how to evaluate the data in the context of the quality of the research.
Upon completion of this educational activity, participants should be able to:
- Explain the value of different study designs in the decision-making process.
- Examine current efforts to expand the indications of SCS in the treatment of chronic pain conditions.
- Evaluate upcoming clinical data in the management of chronic pain.
- Identify the tools to determine the right therapy for a particular indication.
