Patients who undergo certain medical procedures may experience acute pain. Safe and effective treatment is essential in ensuring functional recovery, quality of life and decreased risk of persistent post procedure pain. This course will provide practical resources and tools to assist in managing postoperative acute pain.
This educational initiative is designed for all Rhode Island licensed Prescribers including primary care physicians, physician specialists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, dentists, and other medical professionals involved in the care of patients in need of acute pain management.
After participating in this activity, the learner should be better able to:
- Calculate morphine milligram equivalents (MME) in order to prescribe safer dosages of opioids.
- Identify high risk patients and prescribe naloxone to these patients to prevent risk of overdose death.
- Identify non-opioid therapeutic options for acute pain management.
