Opioid Epidemic: Why Now, Why Us, What to Do

April 25 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Join the CTSI and the St. Ann Center for Intergenerational Care for a discussion lead by Dr. Robert Hurley, Professor and Vice Chair in the Department of Anesthesiology and Director of the Froedtert and Medical College of Wisconsin Comprehensive Pain Program.

Pain is the most common medical condition in the United States.  Although opioid medications have a role in the treatment of some pain conditions, in the last two decades, pain treatment has become synonymous with the prescription of opioid medications.  The cause of the opioid epidemic in America is unique and multifactorial. We will need a complex approach for a solution to this problem.  Dr. Hurley will discuss the development of the prescription opioid crisis in order to guide future action.
