...I look forward to helping PAINWeekEnd attendees understand medical necessity for substance abuse treatment, drug testing, and prescribing controlled medications.

PAINWeekEnd on November 16 at the Sheraton Milwaukee Brookfield Hotel, 375 S Moorland Road, in Brookfield, Wisconsin, will be a timely full day program providing busy clinicians and allied healthcare practitioners with 6.0 hours of relevant, practical instruction in the management of chronic pain.

Wisconsin is committed to saving lives and building healthy communities. “Data Direct: Opioids” was launched, providing the most-up-to-date information on Wisconsin's opioid epidemic and to guide efforts, via the changes, trends, and behaviors, to save lives. In August, the Wisconsin Society of Addiction Medicine worked to increase treatment capacity by training more prescribers to be able to treat opioid use disorders with buprenorphine. How will these trainings and tools affect clinicians?

At PAINWeekEnd, Senior faculty member Jennifer Bolen, JD, founder of The Legal Side of Pain, Knoxville, Tennessee will present Embrace Changes and Prevent Overdose: A Basic Blueprint for Legal Risk Mitigation and Response. She observed, “As payer policies for treatment continue to evolve, it is important that providers take steps to stay current on the legal and regulatory environment that may affect their practice and their patients. To that end, I look forward to helping PAINWeekEnd attendees understand medical necessity for substance abuse treatment, drug testing, and prescribing controlled medications.” Attorney Bolen will also present Get Your Specimens in Order: Timely Use of Test Results.

Other courses to be offered at PAINWeekEnd Milwaukee include Nonopioid Analgesics: Antidepressants, Adjuvant Therapies, and Muscle Relaxants; Opioid Moderatism: Seeking Middle Ground; Reefer Madness Revisited; and Rational Polypharmacy. Commercially supported activities—addressing a range of product, disease state, and medical information topics—will also be presented.
