PAINWeekEnd in Indianapolis, Indiana, Offers CE/CME Education to Enhance Prescriber Skills in the Age of Opioid Scrutiny
Date:2/28/2019

PAINWeekEnd on March 30 at the Indianapolis Marriott North, 3645 River Crossing Parkway in Indiana, will be a timely full-day program providing busy clinicians and allied healthcare practitioners with 6.0 hours of relevant, practical instruction in the management of chronic pain.

All healthcare providers holding a controlled substance registration (CSR) in Indiana were required to be registered with INSPECT, the state’s prescription drug monitoring program, as of January 1 of this year. Over the next 2 years, mandatory consultation of INSPECT will be phased in for all prescribers of opioids and benzodiazepines each time a prescription is issued. State senator Erin Houchin, author of the enabling legislation, stated at its signing last summer, “By requiring mandatory INSPECT registration and searches, we will combat opiate addiction at the source—the prescription pad.” In light of these new requirements, clinician skills in opioid tapering are increasingly important, and the topic will be addressed at PAINWeekEnd Indianapolis by Courtney Kominek, PharmD, BCPS, CPE, in her course Walking the Line: Opioid Dose De-Escalation. “Now, more than ever, prescribers are under the microscope regarding selection of opioid and dose as well as clinical documentation and appropriate action based on findings during the patient visit,” Dr. Kominek observed. “This course will review different patient situations and discuss when to taper or discontinue opioids and how to implement the change in opioid therapy.”

Other courses to be presented at PAINWeekEnd Indianapolis include Unveiling the Mask: The Relationship of Chronic Pain and Psychopathology; Pain Pathways Made Simple; Precise Prescribing: Applying the Science of Pain to Treatment Decisons; Clinical Pearls: Unraveling the Secrets of Imaging Studies; and What's All the "GABA" About? Pregabalin and Gabapentin Abuse. Commercially supported activities—addressing a range of product, disease state, and medical information topics—will also be presented.
