  • Overview

    Let's face it! Despite holding the reputation as the go to medications for acute pain in the ER and in surgical patients, the current opioid epidemic coupled with the many unfavorable side effects commonly associated with opioid use has left practitioners searching for better pain control with fewer opioids. The great news is that literature supports and hospitals nationwide are having positive outcomes utilizing non-opioid IV pain options alone or as part of a multimodal approach to acute pain control. Not only have these successes with acute pain management reduced narcotic burden in patients, but have also been shown to improve other important factors, such as readmissions and length of stay of ER and surgical patients. This application based activity will present pharmacists with the current and emerging trends in multimodal IV management options for acute pain and present case studies to reinforce and evaluate learning.
