Description

Opioid addiction is a national epidemic, but what options for chronic pain management are available? This unique half-day event will focus on a multimodal approach to helping patients manage pain. Speakers will include Donald Abrams, MD (University of California, San Francisco), Raymond Dionne, DDS, MS, PhD (East Carolina University), Adriane Fugh-Berman, MD (Georgetown University Medical Center), Arian Gibson (DC Department of Health), and Mikhail Kogan, MD (The George Washington University).

 

Topics Include:

-- Are NSAIDs underused for chronic pain?
-- Is medical cannabis appropriate for pain patients?
-- Does evidence support the use of yoga, herbs, dietary supplements, or manipulative therapies for chronic pain?

 

Representatives from the DC Department of Health will also discuss the process for becoming a medical cannabis recommender.

 

This free, DCDOH-funded event will include 3.0 credits of CME/CPE. Physicians, nurses, advanced practice nurses, physician assistants, and pharmacists are all welcome (nurses in DC can use CME credits as CEUs). Register today, space is limited: bit.ly/dcrxlive
