Kaua’i Pain Conference

March 1 @ 8:00 am March 2 @ 5:00 pm HI Time

The comorbidity, co-prescribing, and co-occurrence of disability among persons with chronic pain create greater challenges in managing each condition and reducing impact. Pain cannot be managed in isolation. (Wallace, 2004)

The Kaua’i Pain Conference curriculum addresses biopsychosocial dimensions of pain:

  • bio – with advances in the basic neuroscience processes of pain
  • psychological – how the constellation of cognitive processes interacts with neurological signals to influence health and wellness
  • social – how societal factors influence patient well-being and clinical practice
