This is the 4th annual Spring educational conference hosted by CMC-ASPMN. Our topics were chosen based on the current practice of our membership, and also considering the high prevalence of chronic pain and substance use disorders in the U.S. Both of these conditions can have profound effects on our patients’ emotional, social, and economic welfare. It is important to understand the individual, caregiver, and societal ramifications of chronic pain and substance use disorders.
Plan to join us for a day of learning, networking, and “take away” evidence-based knowledge you can incorporate into your daily practice caring for your patients with chronic pain and/or substance use disorders.
Presented by the Chicago Metropolitan Chapter of the American Society for Pain Mangement Nursing®.
