Pre-Conference Course Highlight


We in the United States are in the midst of a public health crisis that centers around an opioid addiction epidemic. Our task as emergency providers is to develop strategies that allow us to fulfill our mandates to both relieve pain and manage the potential for analgesics to cause harm. This workshop focuses on providing emergency department-relevant tools that providers can immediately take to bedside in the management of acute pain, chronic pain and opioid addiction. Early bird registration ends March 6, 2018. Learn more and register!
