Through an ongoing effort to educate our non-acute membership on topics important to them, PHV developed an advisory committee comprised of administrators across the region. These practice administrators worked in conjunction with PHV to select topics of interest to addressing common challenges or new regulatory demands. Each quarter we will provide an opportunity for any member of PHV to join a Webinar lead by a subject matter expert to discuss a topic of interest.
If you would like to RSVP for the current Webinar or if you have a topic you would like to hear more about in the future, please contact Kevin Sypal at email@example.com or at 402-802-8397.

Description: Treating patients with chronic pain is complex and frustrations are high among both providers and patients.

Federal and state agencies, along with specialty societies, are releasing prescribing guidelines aimed at reducing the supply of and demand for narcotic medications.
Objectives: This session will provide you with the knowledge to:

2. Identify risks involved in treating chronic pain patients and prescribing pain medication.
3. List solutions to enhance patient safety and reduce liability risks.
