Opioid Use for Chronic Non-cancer Pain: The Big Picture

Thursday, November 23
10:45 AM - 11:45 AM

In the past 20 years, the use of opioids for chronic non-cancer pain has increased dramatically along with associated morbidity and mortality. With recent government and regulatory body concern regarding the opioid crisis, many physicians have begun to question the role of opioids in the treatment of chronic non-cancer pain. This presentation will provide the physician with the opportunity to identify and critically evaluate the role of opioids in the treatment of chronic non-cancer pain. Physicians will review the phenomena of narcotic neurotoxicity and narcotic-induced hyperalgesia. There is evidence-based rationale for the reduction/cessation of opioids in the treatment of chronic non-cancer pain.
