Putting Pressure on Opioid Prescribing: Novel Approaches to Pain Management

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

Opioids continue to impact all corners of the United States and its communities, a burden that continues to grow at a rapid pace. The current opioid crisis is incredibly challenging for both patients and health care providers (HCPs). There has been a 30% increase in overdoses among men and a 24% increase among women, with all ages affected. While changing these current trends is important, it cannot be accomplished by policy changes alone. There is no one size fits all model for communities to address this crisis.

It is imperative that HCPs not only adopt best practice strategies to optimize safe and competent prescribing, but also educate patients about their pain, and implement multimodal treatment plans.

In this CME Outfitters Live and On Demand, expert faculty will highlight best practice strategies, how to educate patients about their pain, and how novel community programs are addressing the opioid crisis.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this CE activity, participants should be able to:

- Upon evaluation of current clinical workflow for opioid prescribing, incorporate best practice strategies to optimize safe and competent prescribing and minimize potential for abuse and diversion.
- Educate patients about their pain to optimize safe and effective, multimodal treatment plans.
- Integrate in practice concepts from novel programs in the community to address opioid overdose to treat patients with opioid use disorder (OUD).

The following learning objectives pertain only to those requesting CNE or CPE credit:

- Describe two best practice strategies to optimize safe and competent prescribing and minimize potential for abuse and diversion.
- Educate patients about their pain to optimize safe and effective, multimodal treatment plans.
- Outline concepts from novel programs in the community to address opioid overdose and treat patients with opioid use disorder (OUD).
