Clinician Outreach and Communication Activity (COCA) Calls/Webinars - CDC Guideline for Prescribing Opioids for Chronic Pain - June 22, 2016 (Web on Demand)

Course Number: WD2286-062216

Clinician Outreach Communication Activity (COCA) Conference Calls are designed to serve as the venue for timely education and two-way communication with CDC Subject Matter Experts (SME). The conference calls address emerging threats, the effects on human populations, and the medical evaluation and management of these threats.

The amount of opioids prescribed in the U.S. quadrupled from 1999-2014. Unfortunately, opioid-related overdose deaths have increased in parallel with prescribing increases, and the amount of pain that patients report remains unchanged. The CDC Guideline for Prescribing Opioids for Chronic Pain provides recommendations for safer and more effective prescribing of opioids for chronic pain in patients 18 and older in outpatient settings outside of active cancer treatment, palliative care, and end-of-life care. During this COCA Call, clinicians will hear an overview of the CDC recommendations and learn when and how opioids should be initiated for chronic pain, how to assess risk and address harms of opioid use, and when and how opioids should be discontinued.
