Registration is now closed.

Efforts to reduce opioid misuse have led to the adoption of opioid-free and opioid-sparing techniques in the management of acute post-op pain. Despite significant progress, rational use of opioid therapy continues to be necessary for “optimal recovery” for many surgeries. This webinar will provide a clinical perspective on the use of opioid-free techniques, the impact on patient recovery, and new approaches in acute pain management.
