This one day summit is designed to help clinicians and educators develop an interprofessional approach to educating and delivering quality addiction education and services to patients and families. This conference builds on evidence-based approaches to addiction identification and management in combination with interprofessional collaborative and educational practices into a competency–based plan for pain management and addiction care.

The program format is designed to foster thoughtful discussions, analysis and collaborative learning and practice to address the current addiction-based epidemic associated with opioids and other potentially abusive substances.
