The state of pain management: Lessons from early adopters of opioid-free protocols

Thursday, June 11th, 2020 | 11:00 am - 12:00 pm CT

In 1999, nearly 17,000 people died of a drug overdose in the United States. Fueled by the nation's ongoing opioid epidemic, that number reached an all-time high in 2017 at 70,237, according to the CDC.

In response, U.S. healthcare organizations began adopting multimodal pain management to reduce reliance on opioids for surgical pain management.

During this webinar, Ronak G Desai, DO, will share his clinical experience with opioid-free pain management.

  • The prevalence of post-operative pain and current strategies for pain management
  • The potential benefits of opioid-free ERAS protocols
