Approval: This activity has been approved by the Kentucky Board of Medical Licensure to meet 4.50 credits of the requirement for House Bill 1
The Prescription Drug Epidemic originates not from outlier clinicians operating pill mills, but rather from a fundamental lack of training in pain across all healthcare fields. Special Interests and industries exploit this vacuum and fill it with mis-education that contradict scientific evidence, promote excessive & inappropriate prescribing, and create a false sense of security around opioids. In fact, until the CDC guidelines, nearly all opioid didactics have had an industry bias. All of this has been to the detriment of a vulnerable patient population, who in spite of (and often, as a result of) opioid use continue to live in pain and dysfunction.
This lecture series corrects many myths in managing pain. Clinicians of all specialties will better understand the pathophysiology of pain and the full effects of opioids. Without any industry support or bias, it further teaches Evidence-Based, sustainable options to managing patients’ pain.
