CC2018: Opioid-Sparing Practices in Surgery: Acute Management of Postoperative Surgical Pain (Part 1) (OPM)

This session has been identified and designated as Credit to Address Regulatory Mandate for Opioid/Pain Management.

Session Description

In 2015, there were 52,404 lethal drug overdoses; of these nearly two-thirds involved an opioid. As surgeons manage postoperative pain in their patients, strategies to judiciously prescribe and advise patients if, when, and how to use opioids and a variety of alternative pain medications are needed. Implementation of opioid-sparing alternatives and pain management protocols, particularly in conjunction with enhanced recovery guidelines, will be discussed with evidence provided from institutions and across surgical specialties. Algorithms to manage the opioid-naïve as well as opioid-tolerant patient will also be highlighted. Opioid-sparing perioperative interventions will also be highlighted such that the surgical team will emerge with a higher level of awareness of acute pain management techniques that can be used pre-, intra-, and postoperatively. The educational content presented may be used to satisfy the surgeon’s controlled substances or pain management CME requirements for state licensing boards.
