DoD/VA Pain Management: Strategies and Collaboration in the Midst of the National Epidemic of Opioid Overuse, Misuse and Diversion
In the midst of a CDC-declared epidemic of opioid overuse and misuse, the DoD and VA have been developing and implementing comprehensive pain management strategies since the early 2000’s. This panel will provide an overview of the ongoing evolution of pain measurement, treatments and education that has been spearheaded across the DoD and VA health systems. The presentations will include overviews of the DoD and VA strategies, collaborations, and outcomes. Many of the DoD and VA initiatives have been recognized as best practices that are being utilized in civilian medicine.
This seminar is intended to meet the educational needs of physicians, physician assistants, nurses, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, psychologists, healthcare executives, and other healthcare professionals who support U.S. active-duty service members, reservists, military veterans, National Guardsmen, and their dependents.
