The presentations within this course were originally presented at the 2019 SIR Annual Scientific Meeting.
The goal of this course is to improve patient care by educating the learner on endovascular therapies for pain management allowing the learner to implement these techniques into their practice. The following components are included in this course:
MSK Embolization for OA, pain, and spots injuries - Yuji Okuno, MD, PhD
New Opportunities for Interventional Pain: The Opioid Crisis, reimbursement, and practice building - J. David Prologo, MD, FSIR
Management of non-spinal painful metastatic disease - Jack Jennings, MD, PhD
Supraclavicular brachial plexus block for arteriovenous hemodialysis access procedures with supplemental video
This course is intended for interventional radiologists, diagnostic radiologists, in-training radiologists, nurse practitioners and physician assistants.
On completion of this course, an attendee should be able to:
- Identify and develop interventional procedures to decrease MSK pain
- Recognize the current opioid crisis in healthcare and implement procedures which decrease opioid use
- Assess patients who may benefit from ablation of non-spinal metastatic disease
