CDP Presents: Chronic Pain and Opioid (Ab)Use - Online via Adobe Connect
15 November 2017, Noon to 1:30 p.m. Eastern.
This 90-minute webinar (60 minutes instruction, 30 minutes Q&A),will review the intersection of chronic pain and opioid use and misuse in the military. It details evidence based treatments for both conditions, including the limited efficacy and risks inherent in treating chronic pain with opioids and the importance of medication-assisted treatments (MATs) for managing opioid use disorder. Attendees will learn evidence based screening for opioid use disorder and how to best manage patients with opioid use disorder and/or chronic pain.
At the conclusion of this 1.5 hour webinar, participants will be able to:
- Consider common trends in chronic pain and opioids and prioritize alternative approaches to managing chronic pain.
- Assess for opioid use disorder.
- Apply evidence-based treatments for managing opioid use disorders in military clients.
This course will be presented via Adobe Connect teleconferencing software. Adobe Connect is browser-based, however an add-in may need to be installed before attending. Participants can test their computer's capabilities by clicking here (or visiting http://admin.adobeconnect.com/common/help/en/support/meeting_test.htm) We recommend those using Internet connections on government or military locations test their ability to load Adobe Connect in advance of the event to ensure there are no technical difficulties. Microphones and webcams are not necessary, but you will need a computer with working speakers or headphones. If you encounter connection difficulties when using your computer, the Adobe Connect app is also available for iOS and Android devices. We will also be posting a recording of this event afterwards for on-demand viewing. However, CE credits will not be available for the recorded version.
