This lecture will focus on identifying different types of pain and evidence-based treatment for those with chronic pain. We will also discuss the mechanics of opioid and benzodiazepine tapering and how to safely and legally deprescribe controlled medications.


1) Participants will be able to describe and differentiate between nociceptive pain, neurological pain, and centralized pain.

2) Participants will be able to name at least one research-based non-opioid treatment for each of the three major categories of pain.

3) Participants will be able to calculate a safe tapering schedule for both opioids and benzodiazepines.
