Opioid Addiction: What, Why, and What Now?
10:00 AM - 1:00 PM EST
This course will begin with a general understanding of addictive disorders and then focus on the specifics of opioid addiction. The presenter will discuss the general neurological and psychological process of dependency disorders, as well as the specific neurochemistry of opioids. The presenter will then cover specific evidence-based addiction treatment modalities. Learn about the risks and workings of opioids in order to help ensure a collaborative process in helping clinicians establish responsible opioid prescribing and effective pain management"
Treating Chronic Pain with the Science of Mindfulness
1:45 PM -4:45 PM EST
This course addresses a persistent driver of opioid use and dependence: chronic pain. While this course will cover some chronic pain basics, its main focus will be on the theoretical and practical application of mindfulness practice as a chronic pain treatment intervention. The presenter will provide a neurobiological theoretical understanding of mindfulness interventions. The presentation will then shift into a practical understanding of techniques for clinical practice of mindfulness with patients, both for teaching the skill and for increasing patients' motivation to practice.
