TIME IS RUNNING OUT TO JOIN US AT THE WV ADDICTION CONFERENCE…. conference registration deadline is October 12th.
I would like to personally invite you to consider attending the Appalachian Addiction and Prescription Drug Abuse Conference in the fall (See attached Agenda). The WVMPHP, working closely with the West Virginia Boards of Allopathic and Osteopathic Medicine, the WV Department of Health and Human Resources, West Virginia State Medical Association and the West Virginia Osteopathic Medical Association sponsor an annual educational program entitled, the “Appalachian Addiction and Prescription Drug Abuse Conference,” scheduled this year for October 19-21, 2017 at the Embassy Suites in Charleston. This year’s focus is: Pain & Addiction, Best Practices & Proper Prescribing and other relevant topics of interest. The conference satisfies the state-mandated 3-hour CME requirement for physicians and many other disciplines in this area. For those unable to attend, the WVSMA condenses this program into a 3-hour webinar accessible to all physicians. CMEs/CEUs/CLEs are provided for: Social Workers, Addiction Counselors, Psychologists, Nurses, AMA-Physicians & PAs, AOA-WVOMA, LPC, Lawyers (approved for 24 CEs; including 23.10 in substance abuse credits), Dentists and Pharmacists.
As you can see, the first day focuses particularly on integration of addiction treatment into the physician’s office.
The house of medicine stands by ready to work with you in mitigating the drug abuse crisis in this state. To ensure success, we need to reach all physicians. As a WV healthcare provider, please consider joining us at the conference in continuing education.
We would be honored by your presence at this pinnacle of physician and other licensed healthcare professional educational event.
