AGENDA

6:00pm - 6:30pm

Name Tag Pick Up, Networking and Dinner

6:30pm - 7:30pm

Opioid prescribing is currently a very hot topic in Canada. New guidelines about safe handling of chronic pain with opioids have recently been released that highlight risk in the face of the 9.1 million prescriptions written for Ontarians every year. Yet physicians do not know where to turn to ask for help with difficult situations in chronic pain management. Through partnered efforts using data, practice reports, facilitation and education, we are poised to make a real difference in safety and appropriateness in opioid prescribing in Ontario. This session will highlight what the guidelines are, how to access useful resources, and how a clinician’s own EMR data may be used to identify patients who have been prescribed opioids for chronic pain.

Presented by Dr. Darren Larsen, Chief Medical Information Officer, OntarioMD

7:30pm – 8:30pm
