Opioid Dependence: The Crossroads Between Pain and Addiction

The opioid epidemic is the most significant current problem in the medical community, yet we get little education on treatment.

Dr. Podesta will discuss some alternatives and ways to screen and treat this population, and discuss rational prescribing of partial opioid agonists.
