On Sunday, November 15, 2020, Dr. Harvey Finkelstein spoke at the International E-Conference on PAIN- 2020, organized by the Bangladesh Society of Anesthesiologists. Dr. Finkelstein, an AAAASF surveyor, presented The Required Steps Organizing an Office For Doing Pain Injection Procedures.
Dr. Finkelstein had this to say when asked about why he felt it was vital to present at this meeting, “The importance of presenting at the 1st International E-Conference on PAIN of the Bangladesh Society of Anesthesiologist was to introduce the pain societies of the Middle East and Southeast Asia to the importance of maintaining the highest standard of care in outpatient Interventional pain facilities. In addition, it was important to me to represent AAAASF and the work we do to help independent outpatient surgery centers organize themselves and establish world class organizations dedicated to serving their patients to the highest standards possible.”
During the meeting Dr. Finkelstein deepened relationships like that with Dr. Kawsar Sardar who wants to continue educating his members in quality in establishing office-based surgery programs in the Middle East and SE Asia. Dr. Finkelstein first met Dr. Sardar as an examiner for his Fellowship exam for certification as Fellow of Interventional Pain Practice of the World Institute of Pain.
