Program description:
Acute pain, chronic pain and addiction affect the same brain areas and are closely related. In this webinar, Don Teater, MD, MPH, lead expert panel facilitator during development of the CDC Guidelines for Prescribing Opioids for Chronic Pain, will explain that relationship and share new guidelines and current thinking on treating each condition.

At the end of this webinar, attendees will be able to:  

  • Describe the major recommendations of the new AAFP\ACP guideline.
  • Identify three tools that will assist in evaluation of chronic pain patients.
  • Outline an easy way to transition patients from methadone or another long-acting opioid to buprenorphine for improved pain treatment or addiction treatment.
