Opioid dependence, overdoses and opioid-related deaths constitute a major public health crisis. A definite percentage of surgical patients become dependent upon opioids after their post-surgical pain has resolved. Diversion of unused opioid pain medications are another source of opioid addition in our communities. Multimodal use of non-opioid medications for surgical patients can significantly decrease the number of opioids utilized for both the inpatient and outpatient post-surgical patient. The webinar will discuss the extent of the opioid problem in the US and describe the available non-opioid alternatives for surgical patients.
