Upcoming Scope of Pain Meetings

SCOPE of Pain is a continuing medical education activity designed to help clinicians safely and effectively manage patients with acute and/or chronic pain, when appropriate, with opioid analgesics. Aimed as a way for practicing clinicians to meet their state CME requirements and improve patient care, participants will learn how to: 

  1. Optimize safety when prescribing opioids for acute pain
  2. Determine when opioid analgesics are indicated for chronic pain
  3. Assess pain and prescription opioid misuse risk
  4. Educate patients about opioid risks and realistic benefits
  5. Monitor patients on opioid therapy for benefits and harms
  6. Assess and manage worrisome opioid-taking behaviors
  7. Safely taper long-term opioid therapy

The next SCOPE of Pain meetings will be held on:

  • October 18, 2019, at the Hilton Garden Inn, 3150 N Hotel Loop, Lehi, UT 
  • November 2, 2019, at the Des Moines Marriott Downtown, 700 Grand Avenue, Des Moines, IA  50309
