Description

Did you know that 1 in 5 of your adult patients is currently using Marijuana?

Are you aware that more than half of your patients have an SSRI prescription at home and the other half have either an opioid or benzodiazepine prescription at home before they ask you for medications?

Do you have any idea what concurrent benzodiazepine, marijuana and/or SSRI use means to your medical and pharmacology decisions for these patients, or how you can best protect yourself from a malpractice suit with these patients?

If you are unsure, then you can’t afford to miss this opportunity to join Dr. Eric Bornstein for this comprehensive pharmacology update. Dr. Bornstein will make sure you leave this live webcast confident in your knowledge of new prescribing rules, new contra-indications, evidence-based antibiotic therapy and more. And, we’ll include free customizable opioid informed, consent forms and updated drug history forms.

We guarantee you will leave this live webcast prepared to protect your patient and yourself!
