Every lecture has a question and answer section at the end so feel free to ask the presenter for clarification or more information.

Please join the UNC Cancer Network for an online telehealth lecture with Meredith D. Keisler, PharmD, BCOP, CPP. It is estimated that over 50 percent of cancer patients will experience pain associated with their diagnosis, many of whom will require opioid therapy. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, opioids, prescription and illicit, are the main driver of drug overdose deaths in the US. Between 2014-2015, there was a 14.5% increase in drug overdose death rates in North Carolina. This lecture will discuss management of pain in an oncology setting while considering risk factors for opioid abuse and addiction. RN and Allied Health lectures offer CNE and ASRT continuing education credit (upon approval) for eligible participants. We invite anyone interested to view our lectures. Lectures are viewable online via GoToWebinar or by participating in the lecture at one of our designated viewing sites.
