​It's that time again! The Education Committee is pleased to present the fifth installment of EXPLORING PEARLS FOR PAIN MANAGEMENT. On a bi-monthly basis, ASPMN® members continue to share important insights, experiences, and research-based recommendations through this venue. But more importantly, we have found these discussions offer a common ground for making personal connections when we need them most!

We want to share this camaraderie with guests each session. So please invite friends and colleagues interested in showcased topics each time. Reach out if you have any questions about this new option for the meeting.

During the upcoming session, we look forward to showcasing the work of ASPMN® members Barbara St. Marie and Kathleen Broglio. Their article entitled Managing Pain in the Setting of Opioid Use Disorder offers some guidance in the care of this at-risk patient population.

All articles have been uploaded to the Journal Club Basecamp site for easy access. Ask us how YOU can be added to this site for future meeting updates! As always, continuing education credits will again be available for purchase through the ASPMN® store here.
