The purpose of this enduring material is to enable the learner to gain knowledge on the opioid guidance document published in early 2020 by the Medical and Scientific Advisory Council (or MASAC).
In this module, there are several aspects of pain management that will be addressed. Foremost is to familiarize you with the MASAC opioid guidance document established in 2020. In addition, we will describe the importance of standardized assessment of pain. This activity will help you to determine goals for pain management and how the roles of each team member can help incorporate non-pharmacological pain management options. Lastly, opioid issues including when and how to start opioids for pain management and monitoring systems that will assist you will be covered in the modules. To enhance the learning, case studies will be examined.
This enduring material is intended for physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, social workers, physical therapists, and other interested members of the bleeding disorder comprehensive care team.
