Knowing more about pain and how to treat it

August 10, 2010

update- The general public is also welcome to an event on the same topic on September 9th from 4:30pm to 6:30pm.  This lecture will be aimed towards patients- how to talk about pain with your doctor and how to control it.  Location is the same- Miriam Hospital in the Sopkin Auditorium.


I received this information from Ellen Smith- a medical marijuana patient and a Rhode Islander with two chronic illnesses.

You can image that she’s very interested in how to control her pain.  So, she’s part of the American Pain Foundati0n, which is sponsoring a training session for Rhode Island nurses on the management of chronic pain.

The event is on August 12th from 4pm to 6pm at The Miriam Hospital. The presenter is Dr. Pradeep Chopra, the director of the Interventional Pain Management Center of Rhode Island.
