Unique Conference Tackles Opioid Abuse Epidemic
Date:5/30/2012

BOSTON, May 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Journal of Opioid Management is presenting the International Conference on Opioids, June 10-12, 2012 at the Joseph B. Martin Conference Center at Harvard Medical School. This unique forum comprised of renowned specialists in basic science, clinical application, and compliance, will address the proper use, and growing problems associated with misuse, abuse and addiction of opioids. According to a recent National Survey on Drug Use and Health detailed by the Institute of Addiction Medicine more than 2 million Americans are opioid dependent; approximately 4.7 million teenagers and adults used opioid prescription painkillers for nonmedical purposes; and approximately 32.7 million Americans report having used opioid prescription painkillers for nonmedical purposes at least once in their lives. The conference (www.opioidconference.org) is designed to enlighten primary care physicians, pain specialists and other opioid prescribers with new data, essential information and best practices when prescribing these powerful, quality of life enhancing analgesics.

"Prescribing opioids in today's heavily regulated environment requires not just a knowledge of medicine, but an understanding of federal and state regulations as well," says David M. Benjamin, Ph.D., Clinical Pharmacologist and Fellow of the American College of Legal Medicine. "The program is designed to support your clinical skills, and provide advice to avoid trouble with the DEA and Board of Registration in Medicine."

The International Conference on Opioids includes 2+ days of cutting-edge topics and a wide range of presenters including Dr. Douglas Throckmorton from the USFDA, Robert Lubran, Director, SAMHSA, in addition to well-published researchers and renowned educators in opioids and pain medicine.
