A Comedy of Errors: Methadone, Marijuana, and Buprenorphine
The 3 most contentious, poorly understood analgesics today are methadone, cannabis, and buprenorphine. This fast-paced workshop will equip practitioners with immediately implementable practical tips regarding when and how to use these analgesics, including dosage formulations, routes of delivery, appropriate use in therapy, drug interactions, dosage titration (up and down), opioid conversion calculations, and more. All discussions will be aimed at enhancing clinical, economic, and humanistic outcomes on the individual patient and health system level.
Managing Pain Between a Rock and a Hard Place: Getting the Tough Jobs Done in Serious Illness
Patients with serious illnesses often experience painful clinical situations that are beyond the scope of usual and customary practice. Palliative care practitioners are skilled at thinking “out of the box” to get the job done, including recognizing and treating opioid induced hyperalgesia, pain in highly opioid tolerant patients, and the use of analgesics such as ketamine (by a variety of routes of administration), methadone (oral and parenteral), and lidocaine (parenteral and topical). Participants in this interactive workshop will leave with practical strategies to treat difficult pain syndromes in advanced illness, including painful wound care.
Winning the Game of Groans
Back by popular demand, this hands-on workshop—a huge success at last year’s conference—will instruct pain practitioners on key self-audit strategies and tactics to demonstrate and document patient evaluation and monitoring when prescribing controlled medications to treat pain. Using a combination of teaching methods, faculty will present not only the "what" of quality patient evaluation and monitoring, but also the “how to” of compliance and documentation strategies. Faculty and learners will work through extensive case examples and various treatment puzzles to accomplish course objectives.
