    F1: Marijuana, It’s Approved, Now What?
    There is much misinformation and lack of understanding by healthcare providers about cannabinoids. The discovery of the endocannabinoid system (ECS) has expanded the wealth of research opportunities and as well as the understanding of how phytocannabinoids work in the body. The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is now recognized as an important modulator of many physiological processes. More recently, an increasing body of evidence has been accumulated to suggest antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, neuroprotective and antinociceptive functions of the ECS. This presentation will provide the audience with an understanding of the pathophysiology of the ECS, and the current research of cannabis in medicine. We will also discuss ways to properly council your patients regarding the use of cannabis, safety and practical considerations.

    I1: Safe Opioid Prescribing: How, When and When NOT to Prescribe
    In response to the public health crisis of opioid abuse and overdose, the US Food & Drug Administration issued a Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy, or REMS, in 2012, for long-acting and extended-release opioids. More recently, the FDA has issued a REMS on short-acting opioids as well. The REMS is part of a larger federal effort to reduce risks associated with the prescribing of long-term opioid therapy. With this national response, has come a recognition that improved knowledge of opioid safety is an essential clinical practice competency for all prescribers of opioids. This program discusses pain from a contextual perspective, patient selection and assessment of risk associated with opioid use for long-term management of chronic pain, the initiation and modification of ER/ LA therapy, ongoing monitoring, and patient and caregiver education. The CDC guideline for prescribing opioids for chronic pain, as well as immediate release opioids, will also be discussed. Prescribing opioids safely ultimately depends on the trust between prescriber and patient. Training can improve trust by improving communication and collaborative skills.
