Pain Management and Opioids: Balancing Risks and Benefits

Host: Montana Primary Care Association

Saturday, October 30, 2021 | 8:30 am - 10:30 am ET

Live, In-Person Course | Helena, MT

Overview

This 2.5-hour, live in-person course as part of the Montana Primary Care Association's Addiction Medicine Network Meeting covers the latest science, clinical guidelines, and policies around pain and opioids and provides the tools you need to implement evidence-based pain treatment.

The CO*RE/ASAM Pain Management and Opioids: Balancing Risks and Benefits curriculum is newly updated to reflect the latest information in this vital area of healthcare. The thoroughly revised curriculum addresses: the nature and pathophysiology of pain; assessing patients in pain; creating a pain treatment plan; initiating opioid therapy; managing patients on opioid analgesics; educating patients and caregivers; and understanding opioid use disorder. This program meets many states requirements for opioid education and is fully compliant with the Opioid Analgesic Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy (REMS) education requirement (“Blue Print”), issued by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration in September 2018. 

The misuse of opioids is a major public health problem. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported the following:

  • From 1999 to 2016 more than 630,000 people died from drug overdoses.
  • 115 Americans die every day from an opioid overdose.

The target audience for this introductory level activity includes: all prescribers of ER/LA opioids which includes pain specialists, primary care physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, advanced practice nurses, dentists, addiction medicine physicians, psychiatrists and other physicians and clinicians.
