APhA Pain Institute 2020: Rally Your Dream Team to Prevent Diversion (pre-registration required)


Careful assessment and monitoring are the keys to preventing diversion among patients managing their pain with opioids—and the whole health care team needs to be on board. At this session, you’ll hear success stories from pharmacists who reduced diversion rates with teamwork. They’ll share strategies to support safe and effective pain management with collaboration at the center.  

Pre-registration is required; registration is open at http://elearning.pharmacist.com/products/5792/apha-pain-institute-2020-healing-body-and-mind-mental-health-comorbidities-in-substance-use-disorder
