Statement of Need

The impact of opioids on the United States and its communities is a constantly growing burden, and all health care providers (HCPs) should be taking a role in addressing the opioid epidemic. While HCPs can feel caught between prescribing guidelines and patients' needs, it is critical that HCPs understand acute and chronic pain pathways and the underlying mechanisms in order to effectively assess and appropriately manage pain. This understanding is also key to making an impactful difference in their communities.

To better understand pain pathways, Augmented Reality will transport learners into an interactive illustration of the brain/body reaction to pain and factors that influence pain perception. Join Dr. Gold and Dr. Stanos in an interactive discussion of pain management strategies to optimize safe and responsible management of acute and chronic pain.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this CE activity, participants should be able to:

  • Recognize the growing burden of the opioid epidemic and the role of all stakeholders in addressing the opioid epidemic in their community.
  • Apply knowledge of acute and chronic pain pathways and underlying mechanisms to clinical assessment and appropriate management of pain.
  • Upon evaluation of current clinical workflow for opioid prescribing, incorporate two best practice strategies to optimize safe and competent prescribing and minimize potential for abuse and diversion.
  • Educate patients about their pain to optimize safe and effective, multimodal treatment plans.

The following learning objectives pertain only to those requesting CNE or CPE credit:

  • Recognize the growing burden of the opioid epidemic and the role of all stakeholders in addressing the opioid epidemic in their community.
  • Explain acute and chronic pain pathways and underlying mechanisms and how they relate to clinical assessment and appropriate management of pain.

  • Educate patients about their pain to optimize safe and effective, multimodal treatment plans.
