PAIN Day draws attention to acute and chronic pain as significant medical problems that impact individuals, families and the larger community. The occasion brings together national speakers and OHSU researchers across a variety of disciplines. Stephen Arneric, Ph.D., Senior Research Fellow, Eli Lilly, will present on “Why do so many promising drugs fail?” and Tim Brennan, M.D./Ph.D., Professor of Anesthesiology, University of Iowa, will speak on “Mechanisms for Postoperative Pain.” Workshops explore “Managing Pain in Challenging Populations,” “Facial Pain,” and “Opiods for chronic pain management: should we take that path?” Also, OHSU scientists involved in pain research will present their findings at an OHSU-wide poster session.
