Wednesday, December 2 and December 15 - 8:30 – 9:30 am – Virtual CE class – “Holistic Pain Management and the Role of Cannabis”  presented by David Gordon, MD, ABOIM, IFMCP, Integrative Medicine and Medical Cannabis Physician and Owner of 4 Pillars Health & Wellness.  Chronic Pain is one of the most challenging issues that plague older people, often being misunderstood as a normal part of aging and something that simply needs to be accepted.  In reality, pain is a complex condition due to multiple root causes and associated with a variety of co-morbidities.  Conventional treatments for pain are typically inadequate, often associated with poor symptom resolution, multiple side effects and worsening of co-morbid conditions.  Holistic approaches to pain management, including botanical compounds such as cannabis, can address root causes of pain and treat co-morbidities with fewer side-effects.  Cannabis therapies like cannabidiol (CBD) are a newly available option that has been shown to be effective for pain and work synergistically with other holistic approaches.  It is imperative that seniors and their care teams understand these options exist and receive proper education to safely and effectively implement them.  To RSVP email kprior1@brookdale.com or call Kathleen Prior (508)628-7700
