Featuring the Suzanne H. Brouse Lecture by Peggy Compton, RN, PhD, FAAN, Georgetown University, speaking on "Addiction, Opiods, and Pain: Exemplar Nursing Science" 
Dr. Compton is professor and interim chair in the Department of Advanced Nursing Practice and the Associate Dean for Research, Evaluation & Graduate Programs at Georgetown University School of Nursing and Health Studies, and a Fellow of the American Academy of Nursing. Her areas of clinical expertise are opioids, addiction and pain. She has published extensively in the scientific literature on substance use disorder in chronic pain patients on opioid therapy, and the pain responses of opioid addicts with and without chronic pain. Having worked in several public treatment settings, she is especially expert in the use of methadone, buprenorphine and naltrexone in the treatment of opioid use disorder. She has served on FDA, SAMHSA and NIH expert panels on prescription opioid abuse, and contributed to position statements from the American Pain Society, College on Problems of Drug Dependence, and the American Society of Pain Management Nurses on pain management for patients with addictive disease. She currently serves as principal investigator on an NIDA-supported grant exploring hyperalgesic responses in individuals undergoing opioid taper.

About the Event

Nursing research is at the core of advancing health care. As a champion of nursing research that has impact, UMSN organized an initiative in 2009 to bring together the nursing community for a day dedicated to research. The goal was not only to provide an additional forum for faculty; we also wanted to give students at all levels an opportunity to present their research, igniting and fueling their own research ambitions. Now an annual event at the school, Dean's Research Day remains a way for faculty, students, and university health care professionals to share the impact of their research, while hearing new perspectives and forging collaborative partnerships.
The event includes a poster session, a panel discussion, and the Annual Brouse Lecture. The Brouse Lecture is made possible through generous donation by Suzanne H. Brouse, PhD, RN, who received her bachelor of science in nursing from the University of Michigan in 1958.
