           an opportunity for skill building and experiential learning. This includes learning to use buprenorphine to
           treat both Opioid Use Disorder and CPOD Chronic Persistent Opioid Dependency, applying compassionate

           Mental Health disorders co-occurring with pain and many other skills essential to delivering best practice         _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________
           care for pain and substance use disorder.

           We begin the conference on Wednesday afternoon, May 29, 2019 after the conclusion of the preconference             _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________

           We kick things off by exploring the scope of the problem, our successes and challenges and what lies ahead.        _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________

           General sessions include riveting speakers and didactic discussions on areas of disagreement to foster
