In this YouTube Video, Nicholas Scott, MD, previews Pain, Opioids, and Risk Management, an online seminar for ProAssurance-insured physicians.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the U.S. is in the midst of an epidemic of drug overdose (poisoning) deaths. Since 2000, the rate of deaths from drug overdose has increased 137%, including a 200% increase in the rate of overdose deaths involving opioids (opioid pain relievers and heroin). Responsible opioid prescribing is an important part of any medical practice. This activity is designed to address the assessment, treatment options, and safe opioid prescribing practices for treating chronic pain patients.
