At last Monday’s 31st Annual Multi-Campus Family Medicine Research Day, several research posters authored by CBAM staff were presented to attendees as part of the conference agenda. One such poster was entitled “Using Behavioral Economics to Predict Outcomes of Medication and Counseling for Prescription Opioid Dependence” and authored by CBAM Postdoctoral Fellow Matthew Worley, Executive Director Steven Shoptaw, UCLA’s Walter Ling and Warren K. Bickel of the Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute.

The poster was based on a prior publication, detailed in a previous blog post.
