    September 10, 2014 5:30 PM - 8:30 PM This program is offered by the Rhode Island Department of Health Board of Medical Licensure & Discipline. REGISTRATION FEE: $25.00 (Includes Parking and Refreshments) REGISTER ONLINE—PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED https://apps.biomed.brown.edu/cme_registration/ STATEMENT OF NEED Chronic pain is a major public health problem in the United States and has been estimated to affect up to a third of Americans. However, after a decade of standard setting and research on pain control, health care practitioner assessment and management of patient pain continues to be inadequate. Evidence-based guidelines emphasize thorough patient assessment, prompt recognition of patient pain, frequent monitoring, multimodal analgesic therapies, and patient input; yet, there are persistent gaps in clinicians’ knowledge and practice around key areas of chronic pain management. Additionally, rates of misuse and abuse of nonprescription medications have not abated over the past decade, resulting in addiction, drug poisoning, and overdose death. Despite these concerns, appropriate use of opioids can improve a patient’s quality of life. Thus, education on best practices for opioid safe use is critical for all clinicians managing patients with chronic pain. TARGET AUDIENCE This activity is intended for health care professionals who prescribe ER/LA opioids. EDUCATIONAL ACTIVITY LEARNING OBJECTIVES Upon completion of this course, the participants should be able to: • Appropriately assess patients for the treatment of pain with ER/LA opioid analgesics, including analyzing risks versus potential benefits • Assess patient’s risk of abuse, including substance use and psychiatric history • Identify state and federal regulations on opioid prescribing • Incorporate strategies to effectively initiate therapy, modify dosing or discontinue use of ER/LA opioid analgesics in patients with pain • Manage ongoing therapy with ER/LA opioid analgesics • Incorporate effective counseling for patients and caregivers about the safe use of ER/LA opioid analgesics • Discuss general and product-specific drug information related to ER/LA opioid analgesics COMMERCIAL SUPPORT ACKNOWLEDGMENT This activity is supported by an educational grant from The REMS Companies.

Presenters: Linda L. Brown, MD, MSCE | Assistant Professor of Pediatrics and Emergency Medicine | Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University Frank L. Overly, MD, FAAP | Associate Professor of Pediatrics and Emergency Medicine | Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University Program Description: Medical simulation has developed over the past twenty years as a tool to effectively and safely educate healthcare practitioners. However, “simulation” comes in many forms and does not always require access to specially equipped high-tech facilities. Simulation in its many forms offers real-time feedback on decisions and interventions in the form of changes in “patient” responsiveness, respiratory and cardiac exams, and vital signs. Through role play and interactions with standardized patients, trainees can also practice the critically important skills involved in effective, efficient and professional communication. This session will focus on the incorporation of low-tech simulation into a variety of clinical settings and will focus on the Core area of Clinical Teaching. Learning Objectives: 1. Briefly review the history of simulation 2. Describe how simulation is currently utilized in medical education with a focus on “debunking the myths” often associated with its use 3. Discuss how simulation may be utilized in its different forms, across a spectrum of settings Accreditation The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians. Credit Designation The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University designates this live activity for a maximum of 1.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits(TM).

    September 16, 2014 5:30 PM - 8:30 PM The Crowne Plaza Hotel, 801 Greenwich Ave. Warwick RI, 02886 Program Description Rhode Island leads the nation in HPV vaccination, but is still far below the goals set by the Healthy People 2020 initiative. Patients and families are more likely to receive the HPV vaccine when a healthcare provider makes a strong recommendation; providers must be able to explain the effectiveness and safety of the HPV vaccine, modes of transmission and diseases caused by HPV, and address common concerns surrounding HPV vaccination. This conference will equip providers with information and tools necessary to address patient concerns and implement strategies to increase vaccination rates in RI. Other topics to be addressed include: efficacy and safety information, optimal timing for vaccination, common challenges for effective vaccination, strategies to increase the HPV rates within one’s own practice, and changes to the Rhode Island state school immunization requirements pertaining to HPV vaccine. Target Audience Immunization Providers (Physicians, Nurses, Nurse Practitioners, Pharmacists, Physician Assistants) Educational Objectives At the conclusion of this session, attendees should be able to: 1. Apply strategies in practice to improve HPV immunization rates 2. Identify the strains that HPV vaccine protects against & the effectiveness of the vaccine in reducing HPV disease 3. Describe diseases caused by HPV 4. Understand and comply with current HPV vaccine requirements CME Accreditation With Commendation This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University and the Rhode Island Department of Health.
