Transitioning High-Dose Opioid Chronic Pain Patients to Buprenorphine is organized by California Society of Addiction Medicine (CSAM).
Release Date: Sep 25, 2017
Expiration Date: Sep, 25, 2020
This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 1.00 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits.
Conference Description :
Case-based webinar will address patients with chronic non-cancer pain who have been maintained on high dose opioids (> 90-250MED) for months years without improvement in functional outcome and break out characteristics of what is increasingly being called the "Lost Generation:" patients taking in excess of 240 MED. The speaker will present one clinician's approach to these patients including the clinical importance of withdrawal and harm reduction strategies such as naloxone kits, supporting patients through tapering, if tapers fail, transitioning to buprenorphine from higher dose opioids to improve safety in high-risk cohort.
Conference Objectives are :
• Identify patients at a high risk for an unintentional opioid over-dose.
• Describe harm reduction strategies including: co-prescribing nasal naloxone, opioid taper strategies, and rotation to buprenorphine in the face of a 'failed' opioid taper.
• Acquire language to talk about the process of the opioid taper with vulnerable patients.
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
The target audience for this medical event is Primary care physicians who are implementing medication-assisted treatment of opioid dependence, Other clinicians who see patients dependent on opioids.
