This 90-minute webinar (60 minutes instruction, 30 minutes Q&A), reviews the intersection of chronic pain and opioid use and misuse in the military.

Viewers 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.
