Statement of Need

Misuse and abuse of opioids has become a serious public health concern, leading to the FDA approving a risk evaluation and mitigation strategy (REMS) for opioids. REMS introduced new safety measures; however, there are still gaps in knowledge among health care professionals (HCPs) regarding acute and chronic pain pathways and the underlying mechanisms to clinical assessment and appropriate management of pain.

This CME Outfitters live and on demand webcast will focus on the FDA's Opioid Analgesic REMS Education Blueprint for Health Care Providers Involved in the Treatment and Monitoring of Patients with Pain as well as the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Pain Management Best Practices Inter-Agency Task Force Report Updates, Gaps, Inconsistencies, and Recommendations. Expert faculty will discuss the underlying mechanisms of acute and chronic pain pathways and how to utilize this knowledge to implement appropriate pain management strategies and educate patients about their pain, thus optimizing safe and effective, multimodal treatment plans.

Learning Objectives

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

  • 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, 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:

  • Explain the acute and chronic pain pathways and underlying mechanisms to clinic assessment and appropriate management of pain.
  • Identify two best practice strategies to optimize safe and effective, multimodal treatment plans.
  • Educate patients about their pain to optimize safe and effective, multimodal treatment plans.
