As a result of this educational activity, webcast participants will be able to:  UNDERSTAND risks of opiate medications for acute pain management; and LEARN non-opioid approaches to perioperative pain management.

You’ll also learn about the following:

  • Realistic post-op pain goals
  • The role of the anesthesiologist in pain management outside of the operating room
  • Nerve blocks
  • Ketamine
  • Dexmedetomidine
  • Clonidine
  • Lidocaine patches
  • Right-sizing opioid prescriptions after surgery

Today on MedNet21, we're going to discuss Opioid-Sparing Perioperative Care. 

Learners should expect to understand the current state of the opioid crisis in America, and how
the use of opiates for surgical pain relief contributes.  After a review of pain-processing anatomy,
learners will be able to understand the many options for non-opiate pain relief to target different areas of the pain-processing anatomy.  With case studies, learners will be given 3 examples of different multimodal pain plans for various surgeries and patient types.  Resources to further guide
prescribers of opiates for responsible use will be provided.
