Pharma Risk Management: Not Such a Hard Pill to Swallow

November 15, 2019
Okemos Conference Center | 2187 University Park Dr., Okemos, MI

 

 

 

For any physician who has first-hand experience caring for patients suffering from opioid addiction, the multitude of challenges is undeniable. From legal responsibilities and ethical obligations to behavior modification and emotional support, the approach to diagnosing and treating addiction is not one linear path for all.

Designed to build on your current knowledge of pain management and reduce risk in the treatment of addiction, Family Medicine Foundation of Michigan offers this one-day interactive CME conference to provide innovative, proven, and pragmatic approaches for effective care delivery—beginning with a proper diagnosis.

Opioid Analgesic Risk Evaluation & Mitigation Strategy (REMS)
The Opioid Analgesic REMS, approved by the FDA in September 2018, is one strategy for reducing the risk of abuse, misuse, addiction, overdose, and death due to prescription opioids. It incorporates the FDA’s updated blueprint for treating patients with pain into practical education that helps ensure the benefits of opioid treatment outweigh the risks. The goal is improved quality of care while reducing the pain that patients experience. Learn the fundamentals of acute and chronic pain management and a contextual framework for the safe prescribing of opioid medications.

Argoff, MD, Professor of Neurology; Director, Comprehensive Pain Center; Director, Pain Management Fellowship, Albany Medical Center (Albany, NY); Christopher Gharibo, MD, Associate Professor of Anesthesiology and Orthopedics; Medical Director of Pain Medicine, NYU Langone Health (New York, NY)

Opioid Dependence - America in Crisis: What Every Primary Care Physician Needs to Know

This highly interactive session examines one case study of treating opioid use disorder in the primary care setting through the lens of a patient and the “flow” through the system. Explore how an interprofessional team approach (physician, clinical pharmacist, clinical social worker, and peer-recovery coach), combined with utilization of new technology and partnerships with community-based organizations, leads to appropriate, efficient, and effective treatment that addresses the bio-psycho-social aspects of dependence. Discussion will also focus on Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment methodology as a diagnosis tool, and Medically Assisted Treatment as a treatment option.
