Description: 

Opioid and Psychoactive Prescribing in Clinical Practice
Addressing the Challenges through Multiple Lenses: Patient, Self and Society

The 33rd annual Chronic Pain Management Conference is presented by the Foundation for Medical Excellence in cooperation with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of British Columbia.

This course is designed to assist clinicians in successfully managing patients with chronic pain, anxiety, and substance use. These issues impact multiple dimensions of the patient’s life. The complexity of these issues challenge and stress those who work with these patients, day by day and week by week. The conference assumes that clinicians have a basic knowledge of opioid prescribing principles. The lectures will not focus on the nuts and bolts of opiate and anxiolytic prescribing. This program will help clinicians recognize limits, set mutual goals of care with patients and redefine the role of psychoactive medications in managing chronic pain and distress.
