Pennsylvanian perspectives on opioids, pain and addiction

Wednesday 18th September. 11:00 – 3:00.  University of Stirling.

The DRNS is delighted to present an interactive seminar with Dr Peggy Compton (Associate Professor of Nursing) and Dr Marty Cheatle (Associate Professor, Department of Psychiatry) from the University of Pennsylvania.

Both colleagues have a strong research interest in the determinants and sequelae of opioid use and misuse among pain and addiction patients, and bring insights from their research and practice in the disciplines of Nursing and Psychiatry.

The aims of this event are to:

  • Share learning and emerging findings from the USA with colleagues in Scotland.
  • Inform discussions about how this learning can inform Scottish policy and practice.
  • Explore the potential for subsequent Scottish academic and clinical research, including international collaborations with colleagues from Penn University and their networks.

This event will be of interest to academics, practitioners, policy makers and technical experts working across Scotland. It will be of specific interest to medics and nurses working in the pain and/or addictions fields.
