How to Approach Pain Management in Older Adults: Special Considerations and Treatment Options

Join Northwest AHEC at Partners’ offices for five monthly opioid-focused lectures delivered in a lunch-and-learn format. Registered participants will receive lunch and one Continuing Education Unit for each session attended on behalf of Northwest AHEC.

Gain familiarity with current trends in opioid prescribing and prescription opioid misuse in the United States, discuss age related changes that affect pain management, and describe how to approach pain management in older adults

Each course provides the following credit options after completing and passing a post-test and completing the online evaluation:

  • The Wake Forest School of Medicine designates this enduring material for a maximum of 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
  • Continuing Nursing Education (CNE) Contact Hours

The Wake Forest School of Medicine is accredited by the Accreditation Council of Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
