UT Southwestern Pain Symposium: Pain, Opioids, and the Path Forward (RP1802E)

Dallas, TX US
February 21, 2018

The UT Southwestern Department of Anesthesiology and Pain Management's 2018 Pain Symposium is designed to serve the healthcare community by introducing participants to the best evidence-based practice in the cost effective treatment of pain management.  The course is intended to be multidisciplinary and address the current state of the opioid epidemic, an interdisciplinary approach to pain management, the most current evidence-based practice for back pain, the management of cancer pain, as well as addictionology and medication assisted treatment options. 

Developing knowledge in these areas of pain management will help providers implement their own strategies for providing pain management care at their individual institution and/or clinic. The creation and implementation of such stratagies will foster patient-centered care, accelerate functional recovery, and improve overall patient outcomes.

Target Audience

This CME activity is designed for Physicians and other members of the healthcare team interested in advancing their knowledge in pain management.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, the participant should be able to:

  • Identify best evidence-based practice for and against opioid treatment for pain
  • Recognize the physiology & pathophysiology of opioid addiction and detoxification 
  • Review the results and effects of an interdisciplinary treatment approach to opioid usage
  • Review best practices for the treatment of back pain and cancer pain
  • Recognize & navigate potential barriers when deciding upon an appropriate medication assisted treatment plan
