Pri-Med is postponing Pri-Med Phoenix, originally scheduled on Tuesday−Wednesday, May 5−6, 2020, until Tuesday−Wednesday, October 6−7, 2020, in Phoenix, AZ. The conference will remain at the Phoenix Convention Center - South Building.
It is clear that, due to the magnitude of the unanticipated public health and safety issues posed by the rapidly escalating COVID-19 outbreaks and contagion, it would be an unacceptable risk to our community of supporters and healthcare professionals to bring hundreds of people together.
The health, safety, and well-being of our community, exhibitors, faculty, and staff, are our top priority. With an ever-increasing number of primary care professionals on the frontlines of preparing and reacting to the COVID-19 outbreak, postponement of Pri-Med Phoenix became unavoidable. We hope that rescheduling will ensure that our community is able to do what they do best—help and heal.
Our postponement decision was also driven by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) March 15 announcement that mass gatherings of more than 50 people (more than 10 people if there are higher risk populations in the attendee community) should be postponed or cancelled across the country.

In the coming weeks and months, Pri-Med will continue to monitor the situation closely and consult with our Clinical Advisory Board, the global teams of our parent company, and healthcare organizations including the Centers for Disease Protection and Control (CDC) for any new or heightened risks. We will continue to apply evidence-based decision-making to ensure the continued safety of the healthcare community planning to assemble Tuesday−Wednesday, October 6−7, 2020, for Pri-Med Phoenix.

Featured Educational Sessions Include:
Strategies for Effective Pain Management
The nation is facing competing public health issues: the need to adequately treat a large number of Americans with acute and chronic pain, and a crisis of prescription opioid abuse. Pri-Med’s Strategies for Effective Pain Management curriculum focuses on improving clinicians ability to recognize, diagnose, and classify pain; educating clinicians on the full spectrum of pain management options, including non-opioid pharmacologic interventions; and providing risk reduction strategies through integration of opioids into individualized pain management plans. Clinicians will also learn to recognize signs and symptoms of opioid dependence and abuse to better manage patients’ pain and medication use. It is critically important that clinicians have all the information they need to properly treat their patients and safely manage their pain.
