Opioid, Pain, Substance use and Harms

This is not an SDF event, but may be of interest to our stakeholders.

Venue: University of Stirling
Date: Wednesday 18th September / 11:00 – 3:00

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 speakers 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.
