Opioids: An Evolving Paradigm
Challenges and Solutions
Basic Science and Clinical Applications of Opioid Analgesics
For centuries opioids have cycled in and out of favor in the healing pharmacopoeia as societies have struggled to find a balance in use of these powerful medications that supports their valuable role in healing while avoiding harm.
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, however, as the clinical use of opioids has risen over the past two decades, opioid-associated harm has risen in parallel. Researchers, educators, practitioners and policy makers are all intensively working to address this challenges. Working together, can we finally find means in the early twenty-first century to use opioids for healing without harm?
Please join us at the 2015 International Conference on Opioids as we explore emerging opioid research and initiatives aimed at improving care and reducing harm. This year we have assembled the best and brightest minds in opioid analgesics who will share their real world knowledge on opioid therapies as well as chart the future of opioids in medicine. Among the many topic areas covered at ICOO 2015:
• Pharmacologic innovations: new molecules and enhanced delivery systems
• Best practices in opioid prescribing for both pain and addiction treatment
• The latest in opioid management including opioid rotation
• Innovative provider education systems to improve practice
• Phenomenology, identification and management of opioid misuse
• Federal policies to reduce opioid associated harm and much more!
Join us in Boston, June 7-9, 2015
