Drug Programs update


The Chronic Pain Management Program is being held online from September 15 to 16, 2023. The program is designed to assist health-care professionals in successfully managing patients with chronic pain, anxiety, and substance use. These issues impact multiple dimensions of the patient’s life. The complexity of these issues can challenge and stress those who regularly work with these patients.

The objectives of the program are to:

  • Build knowledge regarding the effective treatment of chronic, non-cancer pain and anxiety disorders
  • Identify tools for assessing risk in prescribing psychoactive medications
  • Improve interviewing skills for this challenging group of patients
  • Gain awareness of personal factors that affect effectiveness and impact practitioner well-being

During this conference, participants will work in interactive large group sessions and also have customized training in small groups. The program will provide participants with the knowledge and skills to address some of the key issues faced in daily practice.
