Clinician Outreach and Communication Activity (COCA) Calls/Webinars - CDC Recommendations for Nonopioid Treatments in the Management of Chronic Pain - July 27, 2016 (Web on Demand)

Course Number: WD2286-072716

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.

Between 1999-2014, nonopioid treatments for chronic pain were used less frequently while the amount of opioids prescribed in the United States quadrupled. Unfortunately, long-term opioid use for chronic pain is associated with serious risks, including abuse, dependence, and overdose. In addition, there is insufficient evidence to determine whether pain relief, function, or quality of life improves with long-term opioid therapy. 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 years of age and older in outpatient settings outside of active cancer treatment, palliative care, and end-of-life care. During this COCA Call, a case study will be used to illustrate how clinicians can identify appropriate treatment strategies for chronic pain. In addition, clinicians will learn about the effectiveness and risks of nonopioid medications and nonpharmacologic treatments for chronic pain.
