PAINWeekEnd in New Orleans, LA, Offers CE/CME Education to Aid the Opioid Abuse Public Health Crisis
Date:5/14/2019

PAINWeekEnd on June 8 at the Hyatt Centric French Quarter, 800 Iberville St., New Orleans, Louisiana, will be an educational and exciting program providing busy clinicians and allied healthcare practitioners with 6.0 hours of relevant, practical instruction in the management of chronic pain.

The Louisiana State Board of Medical Examiners requires 20 CME credits and 20 AMA PRA Category 1™ credits annually. As a component thereof, practitioners holding a Controlled Dangerous Substances (CDS) license must fulfill a one-time requirement of 3 hours of approved CME covering the following topics: best practices for the prescribing of CDS, drug diversion training, appropriate treatment for addiction, and the treatment of chronic pain. This CME must be completed by the prescriber’s 2019 license renewal date. In July 2017 Louisiana joined other states in enacting legislation to limit first time prescriptions of opioids for acute pain. Governor John Bel Edwards also signed 2 bills strengthening the state’s prescription drug monitoring program and creating an advisory council to develop policy recommendations on opioid misuse. [Please note: Practitioners are responsible for contacting their relevant state boards to see if PAINWeekEnd courses meet the necessary requirements for CME credits.]

At PAINWeekEnd New Orleans, David Cosio, PhD, ABPP, will present Unveiling the Mask: The Relationship of Chronic Pain and Psychopathology. Research has shown that chronic pain is most often associated with depression, anxiety, and somatoform, personality, and substance use disorders, but less is known about the relationship with other conditions, such as schizophrenia spectrum/psychotic, sleep-wake, bipolar, neurocognitive, obsessive compulsive, and dissociative disorders. Commenting on his course, Dr. Cosio said, “Given the high level of comorbidity between opioid use disorders and chronic pain, providers’ decisions about how to address treatment with patients who may have mental health disorders are most important. In this session, we’ll be exploring how patient and provider education programs and communication interventions may improve outcomes in pain management.” Dr. Cosio will also present The Gentle Art of Saying No: How to Establish Appropriate Boundaries With Chronic Pain Patients.

Other courses at PAINWeekEnd New Orleans: Rational Polypharmacy: An Update for Specific Conditions; What’s All the “GABA” About? Pregabalin and Gabapentin; Migraine Headache: New and Emerging Therapies; and 3's Company: COX-2 Inhibitors, Medicinal Marijuana, and Opioid Prescribing.

Commercially supported activities—addressing a range of product, disease state, and medical information topics—will also be presented.
