In addition, the course covers a broad range of issues, including opioid use disorder and difficult patient conversations and guidelines to standardize the practice of opioid prescribing. This course includes lectures by experts in the field of pain medicine and opioid management as well as question and answer sessions.

This topic is important and has become a more visible public health issue. All fields within medicine that provide direct patient care are impacted, including medical, surgical and outpatient settings. All providers who prescribe (MD, DO, NP, PA, CNS) or administer (nurse, pharmacist, etc.) opioids to patients would benefit from attending this course. This course is particularly relevant for primary care providers that maintain and monitor patients on chronic opioid therapy.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Review opioid practice updates and discuss how to implement a plan to appropriately monitor patients who chronically use opioids.
- Define methods to taper opioids using a team-based approach and the options for proper opioid disposal.
- Describe the use of methadone and buprenorphine in the management of chronic pain.
- Determine and optimize treatment for patients suffering from pain and comorbid depression/anxiety.
- Identify those with opioid use disorder and understand medications for opioid use disorder (MOUD).
