Breakout Session: Best Practices at the Intersection of Pain Management, Opioid Use and Mental Health

June 17, 2020 - 2:00 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. EDT

Key to stemming the nation’s opioid challenges is advancing evidence-based, opioid-sparing Comprehensive Integrative Pain Management for people with pain. Decades of data demonstrate the effectiveness of an interdisciplinary, comprehensive approach to pain. Pain is complex and requires patient-centered care; to make a difference, policy, assessment, and intervention changes are necessary. Understanding the social worker role is essential to advocating and caring for people with pain. (Social Work CE)
