Opioid Analgesics Session

Are You Up-To-Date? REMS Opioid Education
Saturday, October 19 | 1:30 – 4:30 p.m. | Orange County Convention Center | Orlando, FL

As the experts in pain medicine, physician anesthesiologists have been at the forefront of helping prevent opioid misuse and abuse. The surgical setting and other acute care settings are a unique opportunity to ensure patients receive appropriate pain care and education regarding opioids. We owe it to patients to ensure health care providers have the knowledge they need to keep patients safe. Experts in chronic pain management, regional anesthesia and postoperative pain management, will help you:

  • Gain insights about pain management and addiction medicine concepts
  • Develop a pain treatment plan, including pharmacologic (non-opioid and opioid analgesics) and nonpharmacologic approaches based on individual needs of the patient
  • Assess the patient's risk of abuse and addiction
  • Stay current on state and federal opioid prescribing regulations
  • Discover strategies to effectively initiate, modify or discontinue use of opioid analgesics, and counsel patients and caregivers about safe use of opioid analgesics and naloxone

Plus, earn 3 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ and ABA MOCA® Part 2 credit.
