I Just Inherited 100 Pumps Patients: What Do I Do Now? A Case-Based Approach

Intrathecal drug delivery is a well-established intervention for chronic pain and severe spasticity with more than 3 decades of clinic use. However, this therapy can present significant challenges to the clinicians who are responsible for management of these systems. The purpose of this course is to review the principles of intrathecal therapy management for the less experienced clinicians. Strategies to improve patient selection and evaluation, implantation, post-implantation management, troubleshooting, and therapy optimization will be discussed.

8:30 am–4 pm

Advanced Practice Provider Course (PAs, NPs, Nurses): A to Z in Neuromodulation Featured

This course will provide advanced practice providers (APPs) an overview of topics in neuromodulation through lectures, case studies, panel discussions, and a Jeopardy board review. The material will be presented by physician and APP faculty and will be relevant for anyone with an interest in neuromodulation or working in a pain management, neurosurgery, neurology, orthopedic, or physical medicine and rehabilitation practice.

7 am–5:45 pm

Certificate of Attendance: Advanced Neuraxial Neuromodulation

The purpose of the Certificate of Attendance course is to provide an educational platform, offered through NANS, to educate and train physician providers on the evidence-based and appropriate utilization of implantable therapies for pain management (spinal cord stimulation and intrathecal drug delivery). The course will consist of 2 educational parts, including a hands-on cadaver lab, where spinal cord stimulation and intrathecal therapy implantation techniques are reviewed. Further, attendees will have scheduled didactics focusing on the core objectives described below.

The first of its kind, the course will utilize ultrasound and fluoroscopy for PNS targets in the extremities, trunk, pelvis, and head/neck. The course will include a comprehensive didactic offering, cadaver lab, live scan models, and anatomic dissections. The faculty is composed of ultrasound gurus and peripheral nerve surgeons.

Target Audience

This course is designed for those who have already completed residency and/or ACGME fellowship training. Participants should incorporate ultrasound-guided procedures in their practice and are interested in expanding their knowledge and expertise with peripheral nerve stimulation.
