The training sessions will help prescribers of pain medications understand the multi-dimensional character of chronic pain as a distinct clinical entity; identify the role of opioids in the safe and effective management of chronic pain; use rational prescribing to provide adequate pain management while minimizing the risk of abuse of controlled medications; intervene effectively when misuse or abuse of medications occur.
Project Lazarus seeks to address these challenges through a broad partnership that includes CCNC, the North Carolina Hospital Association, local hospitals and emergency departments, local health departments, primary care doctors, faith-based programs and law enforcement. CCNC is providing financial support and tapping into CCNC’s local networks – professionals who are expert in local conditions and resources for treatment.
Training sessions will be held in Hickory on September 10, Raleigh on October 8, and Boone on October 30, and will continue through the end of the year and the beginning of next year.
