This conference will be held at The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University, Providence, RI, 5:00 - 8:15pm
SPACE IS LIMITED, PLEASE REGISTER EARLY!

Frustrated with your patient? Frustrated with healthcare? Frustrated with life? This educational activity will not solve all of your problems, yet it will equip you to prevent, recognize and diffuse conflict in the exam room. An already complex physician patient relationship becomes more challenging when the patient-opioid relationship takes over. Patients who take opioids, whether they are dependent, tolerant or misuse the medication may act out in the exam room & conflict may ensue. Physicians & other prescribers have a responsibility to address this & other conflicts in the exam room in a dispassionate & therapeutic manner. Learn with us about transference, counter-transference, the hateful patient, avoiding unpredictable outcomes and managing professional risk.
Who Should Attend:
Primary Care Physicians, Physician Assistants, APRNs, Nurses, Medical Students, Residents, & Fellows.
At the conclusion of this session, attendees should be able to:
1) Identify countertransference & transference & how it affects clinical care
2) Develop skills to de-escalate conflict in the exam room & clinical spaces
3) Avoid unpredictable outcomes and manage professional risk
This training meets the requirements set forth in RI Regulation 3.14 Prescriber Training Requirement for Best Practices Regarding Opioid Prescribing. This specific training requirement is required only once and must be completed before renewal of controlled substance registration or two (2) years (whichever is longer).
