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 (dorsal root ganglion stimulation, spinal cord stimulation, and intrathecal drug delivery). The course will consist of 2 educational parts, including a hands-on cadaver lab, where implantation techniques are reviewed. Further, attendees will have scheduled didactics focusing on the core objectives described below.

Neuromodulation for Advanced Implantable Therapies: A Hands-On Cadaver Course for Pain Fellows

This event combines didactics sessions covering a broad spectrum of neuromodulation with practical hands-on training in a cadaver laboratory. Techniques explored include spinal cord and dorsal root ganglion stimulation trials and implants, intrathecal drug delivery trials and implants, patient selection, complication management and maintenance of neuromodulation therapies. This workshop’s intent is to foster a platform for multidisciplinary networking opportunity and create excitement in the neuromodulation space through shared lectures and content with concomitant Neurosurgery, Neurology, and Engineering workshops.

Continuum of Care from Wearables to Non-Invasive Neuromodulation

Including a range of neuropsychiatric indications such as pain and depression, this course spans the intersection of neuromodulation and digital healthcare, AR/VR, as well as a hands-on practical training on the use of noninvasive neuromodulation and AR/VR. Neuromodulation techniques covered will include Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS), Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS), Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS), and transcutaneous cranial and peripheral nerve stimulation. Lectures will address how these neuromodulation techniques can be combined with medical wearables, apps, and other home-based technologies to provide continuous and individualized treatment.

Multidisciplinary Pain Care to Optimize Neuromodulation Outcomes for Pain

Patients with long term chronic pain who benefit from neuromodulation often have residual pain, rehabilitation, and mental health co-morbidities that remain after successful neuromodulation implementation. Such patients can realize additional improvement by treating and attending to these co-morbidities. This session will focus on the latest medical, mental health, and regenerative medicine approaches to help optimize neuromodulation outcomes.
