This event  is entirely online. 

April 19, 2021

12:30pm – 4:30pm EST

This year’s symposium is structured to provide guidance on how to differentiate the role of opioids and adjunctive measures for palliative and end of life care. Information will also be provided to help students better differentiate the roles of interdisciplinary group members along with clear case examples illustrating how to effectively collaborate as a member of the health care team to achieve optimal patient care. We anticipate attendance may include, but is not limited to, students from programs such as Osteopathic Medical Education, Physician Assistant, Family Nurse Practitioner, Pharmacy and Social Work. All interested course directors, community leaders, community members, and trained medical professionals are also invited to attend!

Learning outcomes:

    • Differentiate the role of opioids and adjunctive measures for palliative and end of life care.
    • Differentiate the roles of interdisciplinary group members along with clear case examples. illustrating how to effectively collaborate as a member of the health care team to achieve optimal patient care.
    • Recognize from both clinical and holistic perspectives, the devastating factors contributing to opioid misuse both regionally and nationally.
