  • Webinar: Reducing Opioid Consumption in Post-Operative Patients

    Contains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits Includes a Live Web Event on 02/19/2020 at 6:00 PM (EST)

    Webinar: Reducing Opioid Consumption in Post-Operative Patients by Joel A. Strehl, D.O., FACOS

    Session Description

    Overprescribed opioids after surgery has been reported in several studies. Overprescribing can lead to new chronic opioid use in our patients. Left-over opioid medications have devastated our communities. Implementation of a pain control optimization pathway that leverages multi-modal analgesic management and patient engagement has the potential to transform surgical care. The goal: Establish a care pathway in which patients take no opioids following the day of surgery or day of discharge from the hospital.


    Educational Gap

    Opioids are often overprescribed. The lecture will educate surgeons on what prescription and the amount of pills to be dispensed for specific procedures in an effort to reduce the number of opioids in our communities.

    Learning Objectives

    1. Reduce the number of opioids prescribed post-operatively.
    2. Prevent opioid diversion into the community
    3. Increase patient understanding of pain management and prescribed opioids

    Join us and please bring your questions for Dr. Strehl and during this interactive ACOS webinar.
