FREE! Customizing Pain Management in the Ambulatory Setting
This course helps you improve patient care in the treatment of pain management in four different outpatient settings covering anesthesia: emergency medicine, urology, orthopedics and plastic surgery. Learners will explore multimodal approaches to post-operative analgesia to optimize care with an emphasis on evidence-based recommendations. Links to clinical trial data and guidelines are cited throughout each activity as a resource to reinforce learning. Minimize complications and learn the current techniques for managing acute perioperative pain in these patient settings while earning up to 2 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™.
This activity contributes to the patient safety CME requirement for Part II: Lifelong Learning and Self-Assessment of the American Board of Anesthesiology’s (ABA) redesigned Maintenance of Certification in Anesthesiology Program® (MOCA®), known as MOCA 2.0™. Please consult the ABA website, www.theABA.org, for a list of all MOCA 2.0 requirements.
