About This Webinar for Physicians and Healthcare Professionals
Pain is a common symptom and one of the most common problems reported by older adults when they seek primary care. This presentation will detail a comprehensive pain assessment, considerations when prescribing analgesics, and when opioids may be appropriate.
Attendees will learn strategies to identify non-opioid treatments as part of a comprehensive plan, as well as three tools to incorporate to help manage those patients who are on opioids.
This webinar is offered for both CE and CME credit:
- CE credit is available to nurses (RN, LPN, LVN; in California Registered Nurses only), social workers and certified case managers, as well as licensed nursing home administrators in the states of Florida and Illinois.
- CME credit is available to physicians (MD, DO), nurse practitioners (NP) and physician assistants (PA).
Attendees can earn one continuing education hour. See below for full certification information and instructions.
