Pain Points – How to Overcome the Opioid Crisis

Time Zone: 
(GMT-06:00) Central Time
Short Description: 

Experts in patient safety and pharmacy management present on the current opioid epidemic, and how hospitals and health systems can act now to identify and implement strategies combat the crisis.

Full Description: 

Today, 11 percent of Americans experience daily chronic pain, for which opioids are frequently prescribed.  Unfortunately, what started as standard prescribing practice has become detrimental, and due to their highly addictive nature, we’ve seen a quadrupling number of opioid overdose deaths from 1999 to 2015, killing more than 90 people per day. While state and national legislatures continue to search for ways to combat this epidemic, significant change can be made at the community level starting with medical staff, hospitals and health systems. This webinar will provide a comprehensive overview of the pain crisis and how it affects various patient populations, outline CDC guidelines on opioid use for chronic pain and identify strategies to positively impact the use of opioids and outcomes.

 

Key Takeaways:

•       Recognize the relationship between opioid use on clinical and economic outcomes in various patient populations and the community

•       Outline recommendations suggested by CDC guidelines on opioid use in chronic pain and new pain standards just released by TJC

•       Identify strategies to impact multiple drivers of the opioid crisis

 

Who Should Attend:

•       CEOs, CFOs, COOs of hospitals

•       VPs, Directors of hospitals
