Colleagues:

Patient satisfaction scores do not depend on the amount of pain medication prescribed. You can treat pain and maintain patient satisfaction with fewer opioid prescriptions.
Join us to hear real-world results in treating post-operative, acute pain and chronic pain in primary care from three providers across different clinical settings as they share their experiences reducing opioids in their practice.

As always, the meeting is from 6 to 8 PM, 3rd Wednesday of the month.
