ABSTRACT

This activity is supported by an independent educational grant from the Opioid Analgesic REMS Program Companies.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 500,000 annual deaths, averaging to over 90 preventable deaths per day, are attributed to the growing opioid epidemic. Do you know when/if opioids are appropriate for your patients? This session will review the principles of pain management, pharmaceutical vs. non-pharmaceutical treatments, patient-provider agreements, and risk calculators and other resources. Through 2 hours of case-based presentations, Get SMART will help you learn how to safely manage pain.
