Calendar

OMCMG Educational luncheon meetings are held the 1st Thursday* of most months at rotating locations in the greater Portland** metropolitan area.  Our meetings are open to all those interested in case management and the healthcare continuum.  Meetings typically begin with networking and registration followed by noon lunch service, association announcements and a brief message from our sponsor partners.  At 12:15 the featured 1 hour CE presentation by a local or national expert will provide new resources and strategies to enhance your case management practice.   Afterward,  a bit more networking time if your schedule allows.

*There are no regularly scheduled luncheon meetings in January, May, July and November.  Check the calendar for special OMCMG events scheduled in these months.

**Luncheons in Salem, Oregon!  See calendar for the current schedule.

Medical Marijuana for Chronic Pain Management - The Good, the Bad and the Unknown

Speaker:

Ginevra Lipton, MD

Location:

Providence Portland Medical Center
4805 NE Glisan St.

Additional Information:

There are more marijuana dispensaries in Oregon than there are Starbucks, yet most health care providers know very little about marijuana as a medicine and the industry is essentially unregulated. This talk will briefly review the science of how marijuana works in the body to treat pain, along with practical aspects of medical usage in the current political and medical climate. Finally, marijuana is not a panacea and it is absolutely contraindicated for some patients.
