North Carolina faces a drug misuse problem that has strained police departments, hospitals and communities. More than 12,000 North Carolinians died from opioid-related overdoses from 1999-2016 and the numbers are rising. This epidemic and the unintended consequences of efforts to control this outbreak are leading to significant barriers for effective pain control for oncology patients. This conference will bring together national experts to discuss the current crisis and how cancer pain can be managed through the skillful application of pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic interventions.
