Welcome to Emerging Solutions in Pain’s Clinical Dialogues in Pain. This activity has been designed to present you with important information on optimizing treatment agreements in your practice and the appropriate documentation for prescribing opioids followed by a case presentation that will provide a step-wise approach to developing a treatment plan for a patient on ER-LA opioid analgesics.

Doctors and pharmacists will be able to create an individualized curriculum based on your own unique educational needs. This activity is presented to you in three segments to allow you to view them individually in any order you choose.
