2021 NANS Annual Meeting Pre-Meeting Cadaver Workshops

The NANS Pre-Meeting Course Directors are planning an exciting and educational course for residents and fellows. The Workshops are scheduled to take place Thursday, January 14, 2021, at the Nicholson Center in Orlando, Florida. Unfortunately, we are navigating through uncertain times during a global pandemic. If social distancing measures and capacity limitations continue to be implemented at meeting venues, NANS is also considering hosting regional courses that take place during the same time as the Cadaver Workshops in Orlando.

The NANS team has decided to open the applications to the Hands-On Cadaver Course for Pain Fellows and the Certificate of Attendance: Advanced Neuraxial Neuromodulation course. Before proceeding with the applications, we ask that you please fill out this anonymous, two-question survey regarding your current stance on attending the 2021 NANS Cadaver Workshops.

Pre-Application Survey

 

Neuromodulation for Advanced Implantable Therapies: A Hands-On Cadaver Course for Pain Fellows

This event combines didactics on spinal cord stimulation and intrathecal drug delivery systems, as well as other approved clinical applications of neuromodulation strategies, with practical hands-on training in a cadaver laboratory. This premier training opportunity offers pain medicine fellows the opportunity to learn cutting-edge neuromodulation techniques and principles of implementation in clinical practice. Techniques explored include spinal cord trials and implants, intrathecal drug delivery trials and implants, suturing, and maintenance of neuromodulation therapies. Participants are under the direction of experienced faculty. This workshop’s intent is to foster a platform for multidisciplinary networking opportunity and create excitement in the neuromodulation space through shared lectures and content with concomitant Neurology and Engineering workshops.

This workshop will take place Thursday, January 14, 2021, prior to the start of the North American Neuromodulation Society’s (NANS) 24th Annual Meeting. The NANS Annual Meeting sessions will take place Friday and Saturday, January 15-16, 2021, at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort in Orlando, FL.

Certificate of Attendance: Advanced Neuraxial Neuromodulation (CME)

The purpose of the Certificate of Attendance course is to provide an educational platform, offered through NANS, to educate and train physician providers on the evidence-based and appropriate utilization of implantable therapies for pain management (spinal cord stimulation, intrathecal drug delivery, and suturing). The course will consist of two educational parts, including a hands-on cadaver lab and lectures, where implantation techniques are reviewed. Further, attendees will have scheduled didactics focusing on the core objectives described below:

  • Describe the mechanisms of implantable pain therapies.
  • Identify appropriate patient indications and selection criteria for use of spinal cord stimulation and intrathecal drug delivery.
  • Recognize psychological considerations involved in patient selection for implantable neuromodulation therapies.
  • Discuss the preoperative evaluation of patients being considered for implantable neuromodulation therapies.
  • Discuss spinal cord stimulation programming troubleshooting.
This course is designed for those who have already completed an ACGME fellowship training and are interested in formalizing neuromodulation in their practice. 

This workshop will take place Thursday, January 14, 2021, prior to the start of the North American Neuromodulation Society’s (NANS) 24th Annual Meeting. The NANS Annual Meeting sessions will take place Friday and Saturday, January 15-16, 2021, at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort in Orlando, FL.

Certificate of Attendance: Peripheral Nerve Stimulation

Co-directed by Michael A. Fishman, MD MBA, and Einar Ottestad, MD, the Certificate of Attendance course in peripheral nerve stimulation (PNS) is a groundbreaking course that will provide evidence-based and expert-driven instruction on PNS. This course will utilize ultrasound and fluoroscopy for PNS targets in the extremities, trunk, pelvis, and head/neck. The course will include a comprehensive didactic offering, cadaver lab, live scan models, and anatomic dissections. The faculty is composed of ultrasound gurus and peripheral nerve surgeons. 

This workshop will take place Thursday, January 14, 2021, prior to the start of the North American Neuromodulation Society’s (NANS) 24th Annual Meeting. The NANS Annual Meeting sessions will take place Friday and Saturday, January 15-16, 2021 at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort in Orlando, FL. 

Learning Objectives

  • Describe the mechanisms of peripheral nerve stimulation.
  • Identify appropriate patient indications and selection criteria for use of peripheral nerve stimulation versus other modalities.
  • Identify anatomic, sonographic, and fluoroscopic landmarks for peripheral targets.
  • Outline implantation techniques for implantable neuromodulation therapies.
  • Appraise the current literature on the efficacy and safety of implantable neuromodulation therapies.
Registration and attendance at the NANS 24th Annual Meeting are requirements for participation in this workshop.
