MAY 10, 2017
Dr. Fraser Henderson welcomes everyone to the CSF Greater Metropolitan Washington Area Chapter lecture on July 12, 2017 and introduces Dr. Sarah Merritt (and Dr. Aubrey Verdun, who spoke in another video from the same evening about ketamine as a potential emerging treatment for chronic pain). Dr. Merritt, a board-certified anesthesiologist and pain medicine specialist, discusses the ongoing chronic pain debate in the United States: the controversy caused by opioid use and potential overuse, and what the newly released CDC Guidelines for opioids mean for patients living with daily, chronic pain.
