June 8, 2017
2:00 – 3:00 pm ET

Webinar Description

The number of people facing serious illness while also battling substance abuse is steadily rising.  Symptoms related to end-stage disease are often treated with restricted medications.  Such therapies can inadvertently increase suffering by exacerbating concurrent addiction.  Providing quality care and maintaining a sense of well-being can be further complicated by loved ones having addiction issues of their own.  This Webinar will explore ways to balance these challenging issues.

Webinar Objectives

At the completion of this Webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the features of addiction
  • List three risk factors for developing addiction
  • Describe three interventions to curb abuse and reduce the likelihood of diversion
