Integrative Health Grand Rounds: AZ Pain & Addiction Summit: Integrative DNP Faculty Presentation
The Arizona Curriculum on Pain and Addiction represents a large-scale culture shift in the education of the next generation of prescribers. While it is hoped the curriculum will bring about focused results such as a reduction in the number of opioid-related overdoses, a reduction in opioids prescribed, and an increase in the number of providers able to treat opioid use disorder – this curriculum moves beyond these discrete goals to redefine pain and addiction as interlinked, complex, public health processes, requiring interprofessional care and involvement of the community and health-based systems.
Dr. Renee Gregg, DNP, FNP-C and Dr. Angela Brown, DNP, ANP-BC, FNP-BC, CDE have undertaken leadership roles in the development of this curriculum, applying knowledge and expertise gained through their extensive careers, including completion of the Integrative Faculty Fellowship (INFF) at the UA College of Nursing in 2018. In celebration of International Integrative Health Day, Drs. Gregg and Brown will highlight their proposed curriculum changes to the FNP program, including the incorporation of evidence-informed integrative modalities to address the current opioid crisis in Arizona and beyond.
The presentation will be held in College of Nursing room 349.
