Opioid ADEs An Old Problem: New Focus (Part 2 of 3)
As part of our continuing series on the Triple Threat of Anticoagulation, Opioid medications, and Diabetic agents, discussed in The National Action Plan for Adverse Drug Event Prevention (ADE Action Plan), we invite you to join us for our second webinar of the series for an in-depth review of opioid medications and strategies to mitigate risks of ADEs.
We are proud to have Dr. Gladstone McDowell as our opening speaker; Dr. McDowell speaks extensively on the topic of pain management and the use and misuse of opioid medications. He will discuss current strategies to optimize opioid use in the context of the "5 Rights of Pain Care®." Following his presentation, we will hear from Jodie Trafton, PhD, Director of the VA Program Evaluation and Resource Center at Stanford Medical School, and Assistant Clinical Professor (affiliated), Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University, who will address the National Action Plan for Opioid Adverse Drug Event Prevention.
After the presentations, both speakers will be joined by members of a reactor panel who will discuss the key takeaways with our experts, and respond to questions from our webinar participants.
