Thursday November 15, 2018 at 6:30 pm
“Chronic Pain in the Post-Opioid Era”
Lakewood Main Library, 15425 Detroit Rd., Lakewood 44107

Moderated by Brie Zeltner, Plain Dealer

Panelists include:
Dr. Adam Hedaya, Founder, Cleveland Pain Care

Larry Harbert, patient

Dr. Theodore Parran Jr., Co-Medical Director and Educator, Rosary Hall, St. Vincent Charity Medical Center and CWRU School of Medicine

As opioid prescribing has been drastically restricted in an effort to stem the tide of heroin and fentanyl overdoses and avoid addiction, many patients who have relied on medications such as oxycodone and morphine to manage their chronic pain say they’ve been abandoned by the healthcare system, stigmatized by prescribers, and left to cope on their own.
