Statement of Need

To meet the pain needs of patients and minimize opioid prescribing, the Orthopedic Trauma Association has released new acute pain guidelines that emphasize precise prescribing within multimodal treatment plans that integrate non-opioid medications, cognitive strategies, and physical strategies such as immobilization, ice, elevation, and physical therapy.

Not meant to be a one-size-fits-all standard of treatment, physicians should use the guidelines as a starting point when practicing the art of medicine. The opioid epidemic is a complex issue, and combatting this crisis not only requires responsible prescribing – including limiting the amount of opioids used and alternative treatments – but also requires a personal approach, remembering that there is a whole person attached to the pain, and discussions on other issues needing treatment are key to providing the patient with the best pain management plan.

In this free CME Snack, Dr. Gold and Dr. Mir focus on the management of pain in an orthopedic setting. Orthopedic surgeons’ prescribing of opioids is disproportionate to the size of their specialty.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Upon evaluation of your 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 credit:

  • Describe 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.

Financial Support

Supported by an educational grant from Johnson & Johnson.
