Tackling the Opioid Crisis: Strategies to Improve Best Practices and Patient Outcomes

Prescription opioid therapy is essential to improving functioning and quality of life for patients living with pain. Unfortunately, misuse, abuse, addiction, and overdose have become serious public health problems in the United States. In this 3-part series, expert faculty will review best practices for assessing and managing acute and chronic pain; options for non-pharmacologic and pharmacologic management; recommendations for safe prescribing, use, storage, and disposal of opioids; and strategies for recognizing and treating opioid use disorder.

This program meets most states’ requirements for opioid education and is fully compliant with the Opioid Analgesic Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy (REMS) education requirement issued by the FDA in September 2018.
