The ASAM National Practice Guideline Special Populations Webinar (September)

Product not yet rated

This webinar will be recorded for archived viewing.

This special populations webinar series follows the National Practice Guideline overview webinar which outlined the recommendations from ASAM's National Practice Guideline for the Use of Medications in the Treatment of Opioid Use Disorders, which is the first guideline to include all medications to treat opioid use disorder.

The occurrence of acute and chronic pain among patients with an opioid use disorder is not uncommon. Because of the current epidemic of nonmedical prescription drug use, it is critical to know how to manage pain safely and effectively. The Individuals with Pain Webinar will provide an overview of the recommendations and in-depth information on treating individuals with pain from ASAM's National Practice Guideline.

This webinar is primarily intended for clinicians involved in evaluating patients and providing authorization for pharmacological treatments at any level.

At the conclusion of the webinar, participants should be able to:

  • Recognize epidemiology of opioid use disorder and the treatment gap among patients misusing opioids and heroin.
  • Summarize the guideline's treatment recommendations for special populations and discuss how they should be used in practice.
  • Identify the fundamental components of an OUD patient assessment and diagnosis for special populations with opioid use disorders.
  • Discuss the unique needs and treatment recommendations for individuals with pain.
