The opioid epidemic across this country continues to draw significant media attention. Concomitantly, federal agencies, private entities, and medical associations have released a wide array of pain management guidelines. The Joint Commission has also responded by issuing new pain management accreditation standards (effective 1-1-18). The scope of the opioid epidemic will require concurrent efforts from multiple sectors and Healthcare leaders and clinicians will play a critical role.
This webinar will provide an overview of the opioid epidemic and the value to be gained by performing a comprehensive review of a hospital’s current pain management practices.
