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 many 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 significantly in the last twenty years 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.

ELEMENTS OF COMPETENCE

This activity changes learner competence and focuses on these elements:

  • American Board of Medical Specialties: Medical knowledge, and interpersonal and communication skills
  • Interprofessional Education Collaborative: Roles/responsibilities, interprofessional communication, and teams and teamwork

Target Audience

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

  • 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
