As the opioid epidemic rages on, better approaches to the understanding and management of pain are needed by healthcare providers “in the trenches”. This annual, interprofessional conference has been expanded from one day to one and 1/2 days to allow more in-depth exploration of the neuroscience of pain and non-opioid approaches to better manage pain.
This educational activity is jointly provided with the Charles George VA Medical Center and co-sponsored by the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy.
- Explain pain neuroscience effectively to engage more active patient pain management participation
- Integrate opioid alternatives into pain management routinely
- Screen for opioid use disorder and strategize appropriate case management
- Incorporate CBT, Whole Health Approaches and/or MBSR into pain management strategies
