Pain Control, Opioid Prescribing, and Substance Abuse Prevention
LIVE 3-Hour Virtual Course - Saturday, Oct 31, 2020
This program will include the practical pharmacologic management of post-operative dental pain and appropriate opioid prescribing in adults and children. For centuries, opioids have been used to control pain and suffering, but at what cost to us, our families, and our dental practices? What is the new FDA warning about codeine and tramadol in children? Why are NSAIDs more appropriate than opioids for treating post-operative dental pain? What are prescription drug monitoring programs? These questions and more will be answered in this LIVE 3-hour virtual course.
At the conclusion of this course, the attendees will know:
- How to minimize prescribing opioids for controlling post-operative dental pain.
- How to combine over-the-counter (OTC) analgesics to maximize their effects.
- The usefulness of their state’s prescription drug monitoring program.
- The progressive nature of addictive disease.
