***DUE TO SNOW, the workshop has been rescheduled from Jan. 14 to March 19***

Vancouver Division invites you to attend our next event in CHA 6 (South Vancouver). This is the 4th event of the Doctors Lounge series for 2019-2020, which will provide members with the oppportunity to network and learn about practical clinical topics in your community health area.

--------------------------------------------
Vancouver Division has partnered with the Therapeutics Initiative for this CME workshop. Join Dr. Tom Perry to learn about evidence for/against the use of non-opioids in treating chronic non-cancer pain:

- how likely is it for a patient to report meaningful pain improvement with any of the drugs (and which ones specifically)
- in these patients, how soon will you know if drug is working
- is there a dose response for pain reduction? for toxicity?
- real patient videos to illustrate aforementioned points
- related articles from the Therapeutics Initiative:
