Safe Opioid Prescribing for Pediatric Patients

This course has been approved by the Wisconsin Medical Examining Board as meeting the requirements for a continuing education course on the responsible opioid prescribing guidelines per Med 13.03(3) of the Wisconsin Administrative Code

 

Course Overview

This interactive course addresses minimizing opioid use and safe opioid prescribing for pediatric patients. 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

There is great variation among pediatric providers in opioid prescribing based on patient-specific demographic characteristics and pain-related diagnoses. Research indicates that approximately 60% of opioid prescriptions dispensed to pediatric patients include more opioids than are needed to treat the acute pain disorder. The rate of total pediatric admissions and PICU admissions related to opioid ingestion have increased by 39% and 35% respectively from 2004 to 2015 in US children’s hospitals. The mortality rate among children and adolescents because of prescription and illicit opioid poisonings have increased, too. Clinical teams are challenged to respond to a growing public health problem in the young related to opioid use.

Target Audience

Pediatricians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, pharmacists, social workers, and other healthcare providers who provide care to pediatric patients.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Use best practice for safe opioid selection, dosing, duration, and discontinuation in pediatric patients
  • Apply techniques to minimize opioid use in pediatric population
  • Effectively communicate with patients and families to support safe use, storage, and disposal of prescribed opioids
  • Discuss innovative practices for collaborative, patient-centered pain management in pediatric care

ELEMENTS OF COMPETENCE

In addition to knowledge, this activity has been designed to change learner competence and focuses on the ABMS/ACGME  competencies of medical knowledge and interpersonal and communication skills. This activity also focuses on the interprofessional competencies of roles and responsibilities, interprofessional communication, and teams and teamwork.
