Date:2/23/2012

SAN DIEGO, Feb. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Millennium Laboratories announced today new initiatives that support responsible and safe pain medication prescribing practices that lead to better patient outcomes. At this week's American Academy of Pain Medicine (AAPM) Annual Meeting, Millennium is sponsoring two educational initiatives: a two-day seminar on safe opioid prescribing practices; and a symposium to address medication-taking behaviors of pain patients and the clinical value of medication monitoring to minimize adverse events caused by misuse and abuse. Additionally, the company will be a Premier Executive Member on the organization's Corporate Relations Council.

"Millennium has long been an advocate for supporting physicians with research and education on safe prescribing of pain medication, and we feel these sponsored events are timely given the state of drug misuse and abuse in society. These education activities support our commitment to provide scientific data to allow physicians to make informed prescribing decisions as they care for people suffering from pain or addiction to prescribed medications," said Howard Appel, President of Millennium Laboratories. "We are proud to have a role on AAPM's esteemed Corporate Relations Council, where we will work to further our mission of improving the lives of people who suffer from pain with visionary ideas, research and educational programming."

At AAPM, Millennium is a gold sponsor of a two-day educational course titled, "Safe Opioid Prescribing," which will engage 300 primary care physicians and clinicians in a discussion on safe prescribing practices of opioids. The course features expert-led sessions covering topics such as how to identify causes of the abuse, misuse and unintentional deaths related to opioid analgesic use in the treatment of chronic pain.
