The Workers’ Compensation Research Institute (WCRI) will hold back-to-back sessions about opioids at its annual conference next month in Boston. The first session discusses WCRI’s latest research on interstate variations and trends in the use of opioids for workplace injuries across 25 states. The second will discuss two emerging alternatives to opioids: marijuana and evidence-based non-pharmacological treatments, including mindfulness-based and cognitive behavioral approaches. The two-day event begins March 2nd, and aims to address the central theme “Persistent Challenges and New Opportunities: Using Research to Accelerate the Dialogue.”
