Pain Conference - Treating the Whole Person in Pain


Join us, along with other colleagues, to learn how to approach pain from a holistic mindset. From Acupuncture, Tai Chi, Yoga, and Whole Health Coaching to Medication-Assisted Treatment and Safe Opioid Prescribing, this conference is for all members of the pain management team.

This program was designed to satisfy, in part, The North Carolina Medical Board's CME requirement for controlled substance prescribers. Per NCAC rules: As of July 1, 2017 all physicians (other than residents), physician assistants, nurse practitioners, podiatrists, and dentists who prescribe controlled substances must satisfy the controlled-substance prescribing CE requirements as set forth by their licensing boards; requirements vary by discipline and board.

This conference is in collaboration with the Charles George VA Medical Center and is co-sponsored by the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy.
