Hawai’i’s Premier CME Pain Meeting
Founded by Dr. Eric Grigsby upon opening of the Spine and Pain Center of Kaua’i (SPCK), the Kaua’i Pain Conference (KPC) is the winter counterpart to the renowned Napa Pain Conference (NapaPainConference.com).
Since 2015, KPC has become the premiere winter pain meeting.
Teaching Biopsychosocial Advances
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
Designed for All Providers
The Kaua’i Pain Conference is where health care providers, policy makers, administrators and insurers develop interprofessional solutions to the complex challenges of pain management.
Designed for providers of all specialties to improve their understanding of the etiology, assessment, and treatment of pain.
The Oldest Island in the Hawaiian Chain
Kaua’i is draped in emerald valleys, sharp mountain spires and jagged cliffs aged by time and the elements. Centuries of growth have formed tropical rainforests, forking rivers and cascading waterfalls! Some parts of Kauai are only accessible by sea or air, revealing views beyond your imagination.
More than just dramatic beauty, the island is home to a variety of outdoor activities. But, it is the island’s laid-back atmosphere and rich culture found in its small towns that make Kaua’i truly timeless.
