To mark World Pain Week-2013, the department of anaesthesia at SPS Apollo Hospitals organised a continuing medical education (CME) on post-operative pain management on Wednesday.
The CME was attended by around 40-50 anaesthetists and pain specialists.
The sessions were taken up by doctors from the hospital focusing on various aspects of post-operative pain management from different perspectives such as orthpaedics, gynaecology, neurosurgery etc.
“The aim of the program was to bring about awareness about this emerging specialty among doctors and also to demonstrate new strategies and therapeutic modalities in combating the menace of acute and intractable chronic pain. The CME concluded with multi-specialty presentations and discussions, which were moderated by the panelists,” medical director Dr KL Avasthi said.
