Advanced Pain Management with Ketamine, Buprenorphine, Lidocaine, and Opioid Infusions: Practical Pearls and Skills Practice
August 12, 2022
Practices for prescribing and titrating opioid infusions vary widely, including within the field of hospice and palliative care. Despite the clinical incentive to change opioid prescribing practices, many clinicians feel they lack the support to acquire the skills, obtain the knowledge and resources, and create an action plan to enact change.
Through a combination of cases and facilitated small group hands-on learning, this workshop will give you the opportunity to obtain and practice the skills required to administer buprenorphine and infusions of ketamine, lidocaine, and opioids.
This course is planned for in-person attendance only. It will be recorded and made available at a later date.
AAHPM will require all registrants to submit proof of vaccination (i.e. Pfizer, Modera, Johnson and Johnson) against COVID-19 at least two weeks prior to meeting.
