AFMC Response to the Opioid Crisis: A Webinar Series Supporting the Community of Practice
The AFMC’s Response to Opioid Crisis project is developing a Community of Practice for the Response to Opioids PGME/CPD Curriculum. As part of this Community of Practice, AFMC is offering a series of free webinars linked to the Curriculum topics. The series will cover the following topics: iOAT Injectable Opioid Agonist Treatment, Introduction to Medical Treatment to Opioid Use Disorder, Management of Chronic Pain in Diverse Patient Population, Physician Liability, Chronic Pain and the Elderly and Advanced Knowledge of Pain Management.
The goal is to help develop a Community of Practice network to support education and mentorship, sharing of best practices in the management of cases for residents and practicing physicians; and for persons with lived and living experience with pain, substance use and addiction. This would provide support for those engaged in both clinical practice and teaching, as the needs of this audience are not currently addressed by other existing communities of practice. Anyone can join this Community of Practice and there is no fee to join.
