Acute Pain Management for the Patient on Chronic Opioid Therapy

Screen Shot 2015-12-01 at 10.24.50 AMPatients benefitting from the therapeutic effects of chronic opioid therapy generally fall into two categories: (1) chronic pain treatment and (2) addiction “medication assisted treatment.” Both groups will at times need additional pain care measures to address acute issues, such as: trauma, surgery, and hospitalizations. Care providers, in trying to find the right balance between too much and too little, can find these situations challenging.

Today (December 1, 2015)  I am traveling to Leitchfield, Kentucky to conduct a seminar at Twin Lakes Regional Medical Center on acute pain management for the patient on chronic opioid therapy. Below are the slides that I prepared, followed by the references. My hope is that, whether you are a healthcare provider or recipient, as you peruse this information and explore the references and links a better understanding will emerge and your comfort level will improve.
