Description: 

What are Opioids Good for?

The 32nd annual Pain and Suffering Symposium Chronic Pain Management Conference is presented by the Foundation for Medical Excellence in cooperation with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of British Columbia.

This course is designed to assist clinicians in managing the most challenging of pain patients, patients with complex chronic pain. Complex chronic pain infiltrates multiple dimensions of the patient's life. Because of this, opioids are less effective in treating these patients' distress. The conference assumes a basic knowledge of opioid prescribing principles and does not focus on the nuts and bolts of opiate prescribing. Rather it focuses on defining the proper role of opiates and other modalities in the management of complex chronic pain.
