Statement of Need

Risk assessment is critical to providing the best possible patient-centered outcome while mitigating unnecessary opioid exposure. Clinicians must carefully weigh risk vs benefit on a case by case basis to determine if an opioid is necessary, or if chronic pain can be prevented with use of a non-opioid alternative. Risk level can be determined with proper implementation of validated screening tools and by bringing patients into a conversation about their current health issues and drug use.

This CME Outfitters BriefCase features a case study focusing on musculoskeletal injuries, tools to apply for determining type of injury and assessing risk for addiction, including over-the-counter (OTC) non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and/or acetaminophen, as well as ways to supplement non-opioid pain management with cognitive and physical strategies.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Assess patients for risk of misuse and diversion of opioids using a validated tool.
  • Apply evidence and guideline recommendations supporting non-opioid pain management to treatment decision-making.

Financial Support

Supported by an educational grant from Johnson & Johnson, administered by Johnson & Johnson

Target Audience

Physicians, PAs, and nurse practitioners
