  • Johns Hopkins Pain Symposium
  • September 25
  • Experts in Pain Management to Speak at Sept. 25 Pain Symposium

    As the opioid overdose epidemic continues, hospitals and health systems are recognizing the need to effectively manage patients' pain while preventing new cases of opioid addiction. But what does that mean in practice? Attend the Johns Hopkins Pain Symposium on Monday, September 25, in the Chevy Chase Bank Auditorium to learn more about this public health crisis and how we can help tame it.

    The event will feature expert speakers in pain management, drug policy and patient safety from the schools of Medicine and Public Health, as well as remarks by Maryland Lt. Gov. Boyd Rutherford, chair of the Maryland Heroin and Opioid Emergency Task Force. Participants will hear about the components of responsible prescribing, learn from clinical experts working on the front lines of pain management and opioid stewardship, and discuss the larger systemic and public health issues affecting the opioid epidemic.

    Registration is free for all Johns Hopkins Medicine and Johns Hopkins University employees, but space is limited. Can't attend in person? Register to live-stream the event. Learn more or register today.  

  • Bioethics Seminar: Toward a Jamesian Account of Trauma and Healing
  • September 25
  • This event is open to all. Lunch will be provided. 

    Shannon Sullivan, PhD, MA, is the Chair of Philosophy and Professor of Philosophy and Health Psychology at UNC Charlotte. She specializes in feminist philosophy, critical philosophy of race, American philosophy (especially pragmatism), and continental philosophy. 

    This presentation will use William James's theory of emotion as bodily change to develop an account of trauma as fully and non-reductively psychophysiological. Drawing from examples of PTSD experienced by both soldiers and victims of sexual assault, I argue that because trauma involves bodily movement and change, so should successful healing and recovery from trauma.
