According to NC DHHS and the CDC, North Carolina has experienced a 350% increase in drug overdose deaths since 1999 and was one of 19 states that saw statistically significant increase in drug overdose death rates from 2014 to 2015.

Pain, Addiction and the Law 2018 – What Every Provider Needs to Know @ The William and Ida Friday Center
Mar 24 @ 7:15 am – 6:00 pm

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pain, Addiction and the Law

The purpose of this course is to review the psychological aspects of addiction, understand who is at risk, and the legal ramifications of providing inappropriate opioid prescriptions. We will review both the new national guidelines (CDC) as well as the state (NC Medical Board) regarding opioid prescribing. We hope to accomplish a more thoughtful algorithm for opioid prescribing with consideration of long-term treatment and unwanted adverse effects. This course will be directed at all medical providers with special emphasis on primary care as the primary care provider prescribes roughly 50% of all opioid prescriptions.
