Addressing the Opioid Epidemic Faculty  



Statement of Need

The data and trends illustrating the impact of opioids on the United States are staggering. From July 2016 through September 2017, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported a 30% increase in overdoses among men and a 24% increase among women.

In December 2018, the Opioid Healthcare Provider/Advocacy Working Group convened for a two-day advisory board meeting with representatives from the primary care, pain management, oral surgery, orthopedic surgery, addiction, and physician assistant healthcare provider community, and the DEA Educational Foundation, to address the opioid epidemic and create actionable steps to promote appropriate and responsible prescribing for individuals with acute and chronic pain to curb the impact of the growing crisis facing our communities.

This CME Outfitters Monograph features insight from this panel of faculty experts on the challenges, consequences, and opportunities for the development of education to help meet the pain management needs of patients amid rising concerns of addiction and diversion.

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 your current clinical workflow for opioid prescribing, 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.
  • Integrate in practice concepts from novel programs in the community to address opioid overdose and treat patients with opioid use disorder (OUD).
