Decreasing Opioid Use - Peri-Operative Pain Control in Hand Surgery Sat, Sep 21 11:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.

Pain management doesn't start after the procedure. There are many techniques that can be employed during a procedure to minimize dependence on opioids after the procedure has ended. This panel will host a comprehensive discussion of nerve blocks, provision of local anesthesia, and adjunctive measures for pain control.

At the end of this activity, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe the importance of peri-operative pain control as related to post-operative pain management strategies.
  2. Discuss the elements of an effective opioid policy for their practice.
