Boston SCOPE of Pain Training

Join GDAHC and the Boston University School of Medicine is offering a unique opportunity for providers to attend opioid-specific training. Designed for physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, physicians assistants, dentists, and pharmacists, Safe and Competent Opioid Prescribing Education, or SCOPE of Pain, is an in-depth training that focuses on the effective communication skills and the potential risks and benefits of opioids for managing chronic pain. The training includes the assessment of opioid misuse risk and how to manage opioid therapy including opioid tapers using patient-centered approach. As a part of this training, you will meet Mary Williams, a 42 year-old woman with painful diabetic neuropathy and chronic low back pain. Through her case you will learn how to: 1) determine the appropriateness of opioid analgesics; 2) assess for opioid misuse risk; 3) counsel patients about opioid safety; 4) competently monitor patients prescribed opioids for benefit and harm; 5) decided on continuing, modifying, or discontinuing opioid analgesics; 6) safely discontinue opioids when there is little benefit or too much risk and harm.
