May 17 – 19, 2018 | Hilton Eugene
66 East 6th Avenue, Eugene, Oregon
Opioid use disorder is the single most expensive diagnosis code for many health systems in Oregon. The human costs are staggering and this crisis is wreaking havoc among Oregon families – as well as Oregon health care providers and health systems.
Join us on May 17 – 19, 2018 in Eugene, Oregon to share, learn, advocate and inspire change to improve the health of patients, families, and communities and support for health systems and providers.
This conference presents solutions for navigating clinical practice and system level barriers to best-practice pain management and substance use disorder treatment. You will gain practical information, tools and shared learning opportunities for more effective communication and collaboration.
The conference begins with pre-conference workshops on a team-based approach to improving primary care, the 5 key domains of best practice pain care, and a free buprenorphine training.

We will then explore innovation, problem-solving and transformation in three parts to meet the opioid crisis: 1) the future of pain management, 2) expanding access and quality of treatment for substance use disorder and 3) improving prescribing practices. We close the conference with a leadership forum and call to action to end the opioid crisis now. Limited scholarships for the conference are now available. > Apply now
