The National Opioid Crisis
Recorded On: 05/08/2017
The use of opioids for pain management continues to grow. Addiction to opioids has become common, as the use of prescription opioids for pain management rises. This session will discuss the opioid crisis, the evolution of addiction, treatment modalities, and how to treat the opioid-addicted patient when pain management is required.
After the session, attendees will be able to evaluate when a patient has become addicted to opioids and develop a care plan for patients who present with an opioid addiction to include psychosocial issues and pain management control.
