340 - Managing Urology-Related Pain within the Opioid Crisis

‐ Oct 28, 2018 11:45am

Credits: None available.

The balance between the potential benefits and harms of opioid use must be considered when managing all patients, but it is less clear how this dilemma impacts our ability to manage urologic postoperative pain, or chronic pain conditions that may be managed by urology providers. This session provides an overview of the opioid crisis and offers insight into its potential to impact the management of urology patients.

This powerpoint was very well presented and thought out. The opioid epidemic must be addressed by all prescribers and this topic shed light on urological procedures/conditions requiring opioids use and prescribers role toward this crisis.
