The Opioid Crisis and Alternatives

We at GTCbio invite you to our upcoming meeting The Opioid Crisis and Alternatives on May 8-9, 2018 at the Meyer and Renee Luskin Conference Center on the UCLA campus. This two-day conference will bring together top clinicians, researchers, managed care professionals, and policy makers to address the use of opioids to manage pain in the 21st century. Opioid use has significant benefits in pain management, but who is addressing the inherent risk associated with addiction and other complications?

Director, National Mental Health and Substance Use Policy Laboratory

This conference will focus on all aspects of medical opioid treatment for pain management with an emphasis on how to positively change the current culture of opioid abuse. Speakers and delegates will discuss a wide range of topics from basic science, pharmacology, and clinical application to new legislation and policy, including alternatives to using opioids for pain management. New formulations and treatment options are constantly emerging that may reduce the inherent risk of opioid abuse and addiction in patients. Join the discussion and help influence positive and effective opioid medical treatment.

The Opioid Crisis and Alternatives meeting will be of high interest to:

  • Research scientists
  • Clinicians
  • Pharmacists
  • Pain management specialists
  • Managed care professionals
  • Patients and patient advocates
  • Policy makers
  • Social change catalysts

We look forward to seeing you at the conference!
