Friday, September 22, 2017 at 12:26PM

IPS recently announced the theme of their annual fall symposium: "The Opioid Epidemic: How Did We Get Here and Where Do We Go From Here" scheduled for Saturday, December 2 at the Ritz Charles in Carmel. With more than 33,000 dead in 2015 from the medication, communities across the country are feverishly working to find ways to prevent the further escalation of this problem. Contributing to the solution, IPS is hosting an interactive symposium with speakers discussing opioids and addiction in obstetrics & gynecology, integrative pain, psychiatry, and the court system.  This 5.0 AMA PRA Category 1 event should arm participants with knowledge and skills that will prevent patients from exposure to opioids and/or potential addiction as well as how to work with addicted patients to get them the care they need.  Please join us for this critical conversation.
