Free Preconference Session - Opioid Prescribing: Safe Practice, Changing Lives
Thursday, August 9 from 8-10am
Prescribing opioids for pain and symptom management is standard practice for hospice and palliative care practitioners. Unfortunately, non-medical use, diversion, substance abuse disorders, and overdose of these drugs has created a serious public health epidemic in the United States.
Attend this no-cost pre-course and reduce the potential for serious adverse outcomes while ensuring continued access for patients with legitimate need for these drugs.
