About this Conference:

Opioid overdose epidemic is well documented both nationally and regionally.  Healthcare providers receive little education on management of pain or addiction in professional didactic or residency training.  The Centers for Disease Control attribute poor prescribing by health care providers to be a key problem that needs to be addressed.  This course will be taught to help improve learning deficits to promote safer opioid prescribing.
