Chronic pain is one of the most common complaints of people seeking medical care. The vast majority of this care is delivered in primary care venues with only occasional input from specialists.

Opioids are a mainstay of chronic pain treatment and will be discussed in detail with a special focus on issues surrounding weaning of high-dose chronic opioids. Other areas of focus during this year’s conference will include neurology, with specific lectures on neuropathy and headache and psychiatric comorbidity in chronic pain patients, particularly focusing on substance use disorders. The emphasis in all presentations will be on providing evidence-based and actionable information which PCPs can then use in their clinical work with chronic pain patients.
