Opioid Analgesics Complimentary Education
ANESTHESIOLOGY 2019 session
As the experts in pain medicine, physician anesthesiologists have been at the forefront of implementing best practices to 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 help ensure health care providers have the knowledge they need to keep patients safe.
This highly interactive program is designed to convey core concepts from the FDA’s Opioid Analgesic REMS Education Blueprint for Health Care Providers Involved in the Treatment and Monitoring of Patients with Pain. Through didactic presentations, interactive "What would YOU do?" case-based clinical practice questions, problem-based small group activities and anesthesiologist-patient (and caregiver) counseling demonstrations, you will:
- Summarize key concepts and practices in managing pain and preventing opioid misuse, abuse and addiction.
- Assess patients with pain to inform treatment planning, monitor treatment response, ensure safe use when opioid analgesics are appropriate and detect opioid abuse or addiction.
- Develop individualized pain treatment plans, including nonpharmacologic and/or pharmacologic (non-opioid and opioid analgesics) as appropriate.
- Identify strategies to effectively initiate, modify or discontinue use of opioid analgesics.
Plus, earn 3 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ and ABA MOCA® Part 2 credits!
