This interprofessional symposium will present three unique non-pharmacologic areas of pain management (supplements, CBD, and integrative therapies) and explore culturally relevant communication strategies for patient interview and education.  Learning Objectives: (1) recognize common supplements and herbals used for pain management, and be able to assess for adverse effects and drug-disease and drug-drug interactions; (2) describe the data behind the current CBD craze, and be able to clearly advise older patients about risks and benefits in pain management; (3) utilize integrative approaches for pain management, including mindfulness and yoga, and know when to recommend these in clinical practice; and (4) develop neutral communication techniques when interviewing about the use of CIM in pain, and providing culturally-competent advice on risks and benefits to older patients.
