The Opioid Patient Safety Crisis: Actions and Reactions

Session Overview

Opioid related adverse events have become a critical patient safety issue as evidenced by actions taken last month by the FDA (see link: http://www.fda.gov/NewsEvents/Newsroom/FactSheets/ucm484714.htm) and CDC (see link: http://www.cdc.gov/drugoverdose/prescribing/guideline.html).

We are proud to have Dr. Gladstone McDowell as our speaker; Dr. McDowell speaks extensively on the topic of pain management and the use and misuse of opioid medications. He will discuss the latest patient safety developments and current strategies to optimize opioid use in the context of the “5 Rights of Pain Care®.”  After his presentation, Dr. McDowell will be joined by members of a reactor panel who will discuss the key takeaways with our experts, and respond to questions from our webinar participants.

We offer these online webinars at no cost to our participants.
