Grand Rounds are scheduled about once a month, from 9:30 am to 10:30 am
on selected dates. These Grand Rounds provide a forum by which staff members
and visitors can be kept up-to-date on new and innovative research, clinical
and educational issues, especially in the areas of acute and chronic pain
management, management of other symptoms, and end-of-life issues. Grand Rounds
are held at:
Phillips Ambulatory Care Center
10 Union Square East (Between 14th - 15th Streets)
New York, NY 10003
2nd Floor Auditorium

Through this website, we provide state-of-the-art educational modules on
a broad array of topics related to pain medicine. Our first online learning
Clinical Management of Neuropathic Pain: A Problem-Based, Interactive Module,
offering two CME credits, was launched in 2002 (currently
under revision) and has since received two industry awards for online learning.
Our latest CME-accredited module,
Pressure Ulcers in the Medically Ill, offers three hours of CME
credit focused on the prevention and management of patients with various stages
of pressure ulcers and their complications.
The program, Emerging Practices in Pain Management,
on QuantiaMD.com has been developed for the Web and for handheld devices (i.e.,
iPhone, iPod Touch, Blackberry, and others).
The CME-accredited module,
Distance Learning in Symptom Control: Assessment & Management of Diabetic
Painful Polyneuropathy, offers seven hours of CME credit
focused on the assessment and management of a patient with painful polyneuropathy.
Our educational modules incorporate a problem-based model in an interactive
learn-by-doing environment, using the Web’s capacity to reach
hundreds of thousands of practitioners. Projects incorporate multimedia (video,
audio, or animation) and apply adult learning approaches using actual patients.
In each module, physicians work through one or more chronic pain cases. Background
materials on the etiology, pathophysiology, and syndrome, and comorbidities
are contextually provided. The case assists learners to acquire knowledge
and skills necessary to administer various pain therapies, follow outcomes,
and make changes in treatment approaches over time. These approaches include
pharmacotherapy, anesthesiologic treatments, rehabilitative approaches, psychological
interventions, neurostimulatory treatments, and complementary and alternative
