Course Overview

This interactive course addresses minimizing opioid use and safe opioids prescribing in clinical practice. Participants have multiple opportunities to engage in learning by viewing presentations, working with the clinical cases and receiving immediate feedback, and studying provided educational resources.

Practice Gaps and Needs

The misuse of opioids is a major public health issue. An estimated 128 people in the United States die every day after overdosing on opioids, and 21 to 29 percent of patients who are prescribed opioids for chronic pain misuse them. Healthcare providers play a key role in facilitating safe and responsible use of opioids, but there is great variation among providers in opioid prescribing practices. This course reviews the latest guidelines, and best practices to help healthcare teams address the challenges of providing patients adequate pain management while also reducing the risks associated with opioid prescribing.

Target Audience

This activity is intended for physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and other members of healthcare teams who practice in Wisconsin and are involved in treatment of acute and chronic pain.

Learning Objectives

As a result of participation in this course, participants will improve ability to:

  1. Explain the differences between acute, cancer and chronic non-cancer pain and their implications
  2. Describe the roles of different healthcare professionals in assessment and management of chronic pain
  3. Evaluate potential risks and harm associated with chronic opioid therapy
  4. Apply criteria for safe opioid selection, dosing, and duration
  5. Discuss initiation, continuation, and tapering opioids for chronic non-cancer pain
  6. Collaborate with the members of care team to implement techniques for therapeutic opioid monitoring, risk reduction, and addressing opioid use disorder
  7. Describe non-opioid options for chronic pain treatment
  8. Apply CDC and State of Wisconsin clinical practice guidelines related to opioids use
