How do we intervene in a safe and effective way to stabilize the patient who has been diagnosed with both opioid dependence and chronic pain? An international Panel combining expertize in both addiction and pain were invited to develop a best practice approach for patients with concurrent opiate use disorder and non-malignant pain. The presenters will discuss the outcomes of these meetings and the development of a best practice approach for these patients. It will require a paradigm shift that embraces the idea that both conditions can be treated concurrently utilizing a model that employs integrative strategies.

Learning Objectives:

  • Bring out the medical necessity for healthcare professionals to recognize, appreciate, and make treatment for their pain/addiction patient.
  • Appreciate the differences and similarities of the pain and addiction patients who have both “diseases.”
  • Identify strategies to treat this population of pain/addiction patients.

Like too many New Yorkers, I know what it's like to lose a loved one to addiction—there’s an empty chair at our family table where my nephew, Michael, should be. This is personal for me. Today we’re taking action to combat the opioid epidemic and offer New Yorkers hope. Thread⬇️
