The ASAM Pain & Addiction: Applied Skills Workshop

10:00 am - 6:00 pm ET


The ASAM Pain & Addiction: Applied Skills Workshop is a new, intermediate level course. This virtual workshop is designed to increase learner’s skills in treating pain and addiction. The course will be a dynamic and interactive opportunity for those who have some experience in pain and addiction to apply essential treatment skills to their practice and attendees should come ready to engage in dialogue with expert faculty and peers.

This workshop has been approved for 6 CME. Click the "CME, Credits & MOC" link to the right for more information about credits.

Who Should Attend

This course is designed for medical providers with some experience treating pain and addiction, but who are at an intermediate level.

Learning Objectives

  1. Compare validated pain and addiction screening tools and create a plan to integrate them into workflows
  2. Create trauma-informed, patient-centered treatment plans exemplifying SMART goals
  3. Apply principles of motivational interviewing and brief counseling to engage patients in their treatment of pain and addiction
  4. Create a script that engages the patient in a deeper understanding of chronic pain and substance use disorders as neurobiological conditions that require a multidisciplinary approach emphasizing longitudinal care interventions and self-care techniques
  5. Apply pharmacologic techniques such as buprenorphine induction, opioid tapering, and non-opioid medication management
  6. Select patient-centered non-pharmacologic pain and addiction treatment methods consistent with community-based resources
