After participating in this educational activity, participants should be able to:
- Apply principles of opioid stewardship when prescribing short- or long-term courses of opioid medications.
- Optimize anesthetic intra-operative and post-operative plans to mitigate risk of adverse outcomes in patients with substance use disorder (SUD).
- Create a monitoring plan for patients with SUD using continuous opioid medications that accounts for risk factors for SUD.
- Manage pain symptoms of patients with SUD in both the acute and chronic phases of care.
The ASRA Pain Medicine CME program provides educational activities to physicians, residents, fellows, nurse practitioners, psychologists, students, and scientists. ASRA Pain Medicine supports a multidisciplinary and interprofessional approach to continuing
education and patient care by also providing relevant education for other healthcare professionals not directly engaging in interventional regional anesthesia and/or pain medicine procedures. ASRA Pain Medicine offers learning opportunities to the
national and international healthcare community.
As SUDs become more prevalent, health care professionals from all fields now interact with and are required to care for patients with these diagnoses. This symposium intends to bridge the knowledge gap that many health professionals face in treating patients with SUD in the perioperative period or the chronic pain clinic. Participants will benefit from a deeper understanding of risk factors for SUD and best practices for patients with SUD in the acute and chronic phases of care.
