Conversations between provider/clinician and patients/family members around safe opioid prescribing can be difficult and uncomfortable, especially if they involve change in the current treatment plan, such as initiating a taper. This session will feature a behavioral health clinician and a primary care provider who have worked extensively as consultants helping providers and primary care teams develop strategies and interviewing techniques to successfully navigate these difficult, often emotional, interactions. Participants will watch the primary care provider demonstrate how to utilize the simple, three-item PEG assessment tool to guide a difficult pain interview in just seven minutes.
This session is accredited for the following accreditation types: CME, CNE, CPE, APA, AAFP, AAHCPAD*, NAADAC*, ASWB*
*State and provincial regulatory boards have the final authority to determine whether an individual course may be accepted for continuing education credit.
