History and Evolution of Pain Management and Opioid Use In America

Not accounting for acute pain, 26 percent of Americans aged 20 and older report experiencing pain of any sort that lasted for longer than 24 hours. Furthermore, 23.4 million adults reported experiencing "a lot of pain" in the past 3 months on a 2012 National Health survey. Chronic pain can lead to a number of negative consequences for individuals, such as depression, anxiety, disrupted sleep, work and social disability, a reduced quality of life, and even suicidal ideation. Throughout the past 30 years, pain management in America has evolved from not being a priority to having pain being considered as a fifth “vital sign.” In this webinar, you will learn of some tools to help you measure a client’s pain, pain management requirements as dictated by the Joint Commission, and the prevalence of opioids in treating chronic pain. You will then explore opioids in greater detail, learning about the prescribing epidemic, potentially adverse consequences, misuse, and addiction. Lastly, you will hear about responses from the government and healthcare professionals to this epidemic, as well as some alternatives to opioids in relieving pain. This course is appropriate for all licensed professionals who work with opioid addiction and professionals who are potentially responsible for prescribing and monitoring the use of opioids.
