Opioid Prescribing
1 CME CREDIT

Providing safe and effective pain control can be achieved despite the serious public health crisis of the opioid overdose and misuse epidemic currently affecting the United States and other countries. This talk will review the evolution of the present-day opioid epidemic to better understand current risks. Terminology associated with addiction, currently referred to as substance use disorder, will be defined. Assessment of pain is imperative, with a shift away from intensity to functional ability. Risk factors for misuse must also be assessed. These findings inform the treatment regimen, including whether opioids are indicated, and if so, what mitigating strategies must be implicated to reduce the risk of misuse. Techniques such as harm reduction, weaning and safe handling will be addressed.
