Tune in for a brief update on the current state of the Opioid Epidemic – a multi-faceted issue resulting in opioid abuse and dependency throughout America. This webinar focuses on the Pennsylvania population. With orthopaedic surgeons among the highest prescribers of opioids, this webinar will review evidence-based pain management and opioid-prescribing strategies to help you:
- Avoid inadvertent over-prescribing
- Formulate and implement strategies into your practice
Wrap up the event with Q&A discussion with Dr. Ilyas.
At the conclusion of this webinar, learners should be able to:
- Explain the “Opioid Epidemic” in America in general and Pennsylvania specifically.
- Demonstrate evidence-based opioid prescribing strategies
- Identify opportunities in your practice to implement evidence based opioid prescribing.
