Effective Pain Management for a Healthier South Carolina: CME on Acute Pain, Chronic Pain, and Opioid Misuse/Opioid Use Disorder
|Many continuing medical education (CME) courses are available on pain management and opioid misuse. However, few CME activities provide guidance that can be used in real-life clinical situations. The guidance presented in this CME is primarily derived from publicly available sources such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) opioid prescribing guidelines, Oregon State Resource for Professionals Treating Pain, Acute Pain Management: Meeting the Challenges by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, and current National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) and Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) recommendations on the treatment of opioid use disorder.|
At the end of this session, each attendee should be able to:
- Describe South Carolina laws related to the prescribing of opioid medications.
- Use current evidence to address patient expectations regarding management of pain for acute and chronic conditions.
- Describe acute and chronic pain management strategies.
- Be familiar with approaches to tapering patients off of chronic opioid medications.
- Discuss strategies to address pain management for patients with substance use disorder
- Understand pharmacotherapy treatment options for patients with opioid use disorder
This program is designed for all Physicians and other interested medical professionals
