Virtual workshops offer up-to-date, practical, evidence-based guidance for chronic pain management for patients with serious illness in the context of substance use disorder.

On June 26, 2024, in partnership with RE-UP, the Center to Advance Palliative Care (CAPC) launched a series of Virtual Workshops to help clinicians confidently manage pain for patients living with a serious illness and chronic pain, with or without concurrent substance use disorder. These workshops, taught by expert faculty Jessica S. Merlin, MD, PhD, MBA, and Katie Fitzgerald Jones, PhD, ACHPN, CARN-AP, synthesize the evidence and best practices for chronic pain management for some of the most complex patients and introduce an important treatment for the clinician’s toolbox: buprenorphine.

The series includes a two-hour workshop on prescribing buprenorphine and a one-hour case review workshop. Clinicians from all care settings, working with all patient populations, are encouraged to attend one or both of the workshops. Participants can earn continuing medical education (CME), Maintenance of Certification (MOC), and continuing nursing education (CNE) credits and meet DEA training requirements.

CAPC membership is not required to attend, but members receive discounted registration.
