August 2, 2016 Print

Addictions conferenceMore than 400 clinicians from around the world converged on Cambridge, Massachusetts in early May for the McLean Hospital Addictions 2016 conference. Those in attendance included addiction specialists, mental health professionals, and practitioners representing family and internal medicine, anesthesiology, infectious disease, pediatrics, and emergency medicine.

“This was a hugely successful conference that brought together a variety of professionals who are interested in helping people with substance use and other addiction disorders,” said Christopher M. Palmer, MD, director of the Department of Postgraduate and Continuing Education at McLean. “The wide range of topics allowed for in-depth exploration of contemporary issues in the addiction field.”

The sixth annual conference covered topics such as addiction and suicide, pain management in the context of addiction, medical marijuana, and gambling disorders.
