Our CME activity is divided into two segments. The first segment, including a keynote and plenary session with Q & A, is designed to improve physicians' and other clinical providers' knowledge and understanding of best practices for pain management including treatment during pregnancy of the pregnant women and neonate. Information about the current regulatory status of opioid use in practice will be discussed along with understanding how implicit bias may impact treatment and a session about the Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NOWS) is also provided. A panel will be presented to discuss the challenges of pain management and to answer participants' questions. Finally, a session regarding alternative treatment of pain is included. The second session provides a simulated ethics consult in the SIM Center to provide participants with "hands on" experience in the ethical decision making process involving pain management and substance abuse.
