Hands-on Workshops

Enhance your World Congress experience by participating in innovative sessions designed to provide unique perspectives and professional development. These workshops occurred during the 17th World Congress on Pain.

Neuromodulation Hands-on Cadaver Workshop

Spinal Cord Stimulation, Peripheral Nerve/Field Stimulation, Intrathecal Pump

Session I: September 13, 10:45 a.m. – 12:45 p.m. or Session II: September 13, 4:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.

Capacity limit: 50 registrants.  Register early.

Learn the indications and applications for spinal cord stimulation and peripheral nerve/field stimulation as well as techniques for spinal cord stimulation and peripheral nerve/field stimulator trial and implant under image guidance (ultrasound and fluoroscopy). Find out about the indications and applications for intrathecal pump trial and implantation, and learn techniques for intrathecal drug therapy trial and implant under image guidance (fluoroscopy).

This session is supported with product support from Medtronic, Artemis Shielding and GE.

QST Hands-on Workshop

September 14, 4:30 p.m.– 6:30 p.m.

Here is your chance to obtain hands-on experience with multiple modalities of quantitative sensory testing (QST) of pain responses. You will develop an understanding of the methods and principles of QST and learn about recent developments in its science and application.

Groups of participants will rotate between stations approximately every 30 minutes. Each station will include a brief introduction and demonstration, a chance for participants to test the equipment and procedures, and a Q&A. After completing the station rotations, there will be a demonstration involving an examination of one or two neuropathic pain patients.
