SHOUT Webinar 3: Acute Pain and Perioperative Management in Opioid Use Disorder
Wednesday, December 13, 2017
About This Event
Management of acute pain in patients with opioid use disorders can be challenging, and many clinical questions arise when patients are already on medication-assisted treatment. This webinar focused on management of acute pain and control of pain and cravings in the perioperative period for patients who are taking methadone, buprenorphine, or naltrexone for opioid use disorder. Led by an inpatient provider and a hospitalist, the session will cover practical steps for achieving analgesia and preventing relapse.
Support for Hospital Opioid Use Treatment (Project SHOUT) provides clinical leaders with the tools they need to start and maintain patients on buprenorphine or methadone during hospitalizations for any condition, be it medical, surgical, or obstetric. Specialists from the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) will provide a suite of supports: coaching, toolkits, protocols, monographs for pharmacy and therapeutics committees, webinars, and onsite presentations.
