In partnership with University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences and the UAMS Arkansas Geriatric Education Collaborative, the Clinton School of Public Service is presenting a program on “Combating the Opioid Crisis and Chronic Pain.”
This program is geared toward older adults in Arkansas managing chronic pain issues. A panel discussion and scenarios will facilitate discussion on the current opioid epidemic, understanding opioids and how pain works in the body, and the issues surrounding chronic pain and non-opioid pain alternatives.
Scenarios (demonstrations) of doctor and patient visits during various treatment options and stages of a typical chronic pain journey will be conducted.
Panelist include UAMS experts Michael Mancino, M.D.; Teresa Hudson, Pharm.D., Ph.D.; Masil George, M.D.; Heejung Choi, M.D.; and Leah Tobey, D.P.T. Additional segments include Kirk Lane, Arkansas drug director, and a video story with Johnathan Goree, M.D.
