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 2 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.
