MONTCLAIR, N.J., Sept. 26, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- PAINWeekEnd on October 12 at The

Westin Richmond, 6631 W. Broad Street, in Virginia, will be an educational and exciting program providing busy clinicians and allied healthcare practitioners with 6.0 hours of relevant, practical instruction in the management of chronic pain.

At PAINWeekEnd Richmond, David Cosio, PhD, ABPP, will present Falling Down the Rabbit Hole: A Primer for Chronic Pain Management and Substance Abuse Disorders. As the economic, mental health, and medical consequences of prescribing opioid medications have mounted, the prevailing logic regarding the usefulness of prescribing opioids for chronic pain has shifted. Commenting on his course, Dr. Cosio said, "Given the high level of comorbidity between opioid use disorders and chronic pain, providers' decisions about how to address treatment with patients who may have, or who have been diagnosed with, substance use disorders are often complex. In this session, we'll be exploring how patient and provider education programs and communication interventions may improve outcomes in pain management. Participants will also learn how to select candidates for opioid trials, assess for risk, and initiate opioid therapy, but only after exploring nonopioid and nonpharmacological strategies." Dr. Cosio will also present The Gentle Art of Saying No: How to Establish Appropriate Boundaries With Chronic Pain Patients.

Other course topics: Pain Management at Ground Zero; The Gang that Couldn't Shoot Straight: Revisiting the CDC Guideline; Thug Drugs; and Migraine and More.

Commercially supported activities—addressing a range of product, disease state, and medical information topics—will also be presented.
