CPNB Consulting is focused on creating sustainable and profitable programs in the ‘Real World’ of private practice. This includes not only teaching the technical skills to perform particular nerve blocks, but how to recognize the key elements in your infrastructure that must be in place and grow as your program expands. Beyond all of this, the model of CPNB Consulting centers on mentoring you as you develop you comfort with many of the non-technical aspects of patient care. Some of these areas include: appropriate patient selection, procedure choice, intra-operative plan development, trouble-shooting and post-operative patient management. These critical aspects are difficult to discern from textbooks or workshops and can only be learned through experience and ongoing feedback.
My background has been with private practice groups that had unfavorable payer mixes, but my nerve block programs are still profitable for our groups and the hospitals. I make the assumption that you do not have underpaid fellows and residents to do the grunt work for you. Your solutions are meant to work in your busy private practice. As well, I am interested in giving you practical knowledge and skills that are in line with the academic literature, but not limited or avoidant due to the limited data in existence.
