Statement of Need

New evidence and guideline recommendations strongly support educating patients about their acute and chronic pain as well as the non-opioid alternatives available for pain management. However, in recent surveying, prior to exposure to CME Outfitters education, 45% of clinicians shared this information with their patients less than 50% of the time.

This podcast is the second episode in a CMEOCast series and focuses on making informative treatment decisions for pain management in order to change habits and improve outcomes. As part of that process is to educate patients in order to manage their expectations, it features expert faculty discussing strategies on how to best assess patients for misuse and communicate necessary information with patients.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Educate patients about their pain and non-opioid pain management to optimize safe and effective, multimodal treatment plans.
  • Assess patients for risk of misuse and diversion of opioids using a validated tool.

The following learning objectives pertain only to those requesting CNE or CPE credit:

  • Educate patients about their pain and non-opioid pain management to optimize safe and effective, multimodal treatment plans.
  • Summarize how to assess patients for risk of misuse and diversion of opioids using a validated tool.

Financial Support

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