The Center to Advance Palliative Care (CAPC) is partnering with RE-UP—a unique education program focused on the intersection of serious illness, chronic pain, and opioid complexity, including substance use disorder—to offer this workshop.

In this interactive one-hour workshop, attendees will hear case studies of patients with serious illness who have chronic pain, with or without concurrent substance use disorder. Attendees will discuss the cases together to determine safe, effective, and evidence-based pain management prescribing strategies for each patient—all while building a trusting patient-clinician relationship.

Clinicians from all care settings, working with all patient populations, are encouraged to attend. Prior completion of the workshop, Managing Pain at the Intersection of Serious Illness, Chronic Pain, and Substance Use Disorder, is recommended. CAPC membership is NOT required, but members receive discounted registration.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Discuss the use of buprenorphine for chronic pain or opioid use disorder in people with serious illness
  • Describe a safe buprenorphine rotation
  • Use the seven principles of buprenorphine initiation for patients with serious illness, accounting for individual patient factors

What You’ll Earn

To earn Continuing Education credits for this live event, you must join Zoom using the same email address as your CAPC user account (you can verify the address on your dashboard). We cannot provide Continuing Education credits if you join by phone for the live event. You must also attend at least 90% of the event, complete the post-test and evaluation, and sign the attestation.

Approval for continuing medical and nursing education credits and Maintenance of Certification (MOC) credits for this activity are pending approval.

This learning activity is designed to meet the Federal MATE Act requirement for new or renewing DEA licensees for 1 hours of training on opioid or other substance use disorders and the appropriate treatment of pain.
