This conference will address the challenges on opportunities that arise for front-line providers treating patients with primary or co-morbid pain conditions during the opioid crisis. Expert speakers will review the history of pain management before and during the opioid crisis, current guideline-recommended treatments for chronic pain, including evidence-based psychotherapeutic techniques, physical therapy techniques, pharmacologic approaches and comprehensive multidisciplinary programs. Speakers will also review common clinical challenges including opioid discontinuation, identification and treatment of opioid use disorder, peri-surgical management and multidisciplinary management, and managing co-morbid psychiatric conditions including PTSD. Two concurrent 4-hour workshops will be offered: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for Pain and Identification and Treatment of Opioid Use Disorder (qualifies for 4 hours towards official training for DATA 2000 Waiver to prescribe Buprenorphine and Controlled Substance Prescribing CME).
