Join ARN for this live webinar on May 13, 2020 at 2 P.M. CST / 12 P.M. PST with Paul Nathenson, DNP, APRN, NP-C & Sophie Nathenson PhD to discuss The Opioid Crisis- Where Do We Go from Here? From Reach 2019.

The purpose of this session is to summarize the trajectory of the opioid crisis and related morbidity and mortality. Over the last two decades, adverse events from prescription opioids have soared in the United States. In 2015, more Americans died of these products than ever before. It is estimated that roughly 3.8 million people misuse pain relievers every month and more than 2 million individuals are estimated to have an opioid use disorder every year, the majority of whom are not yet in treatment. Due to the significance of this public health issue the Institute of Medicine commissioned a group of experts to study the problem and develop an evidenced based approach to improve the care and management for the more than 100 million Americans experiencing chronic pain. The committee’s report, Relieving Pain in America: A Blueprint for Transforming Prevention, Care, Education, and Research was published in 2011.  The report recommended non-opioid and non-pharmacological approaches to chronic pain and indicated that nurses and clinicians require additional advanced education in pain management. The aim of this presentation is to the examine the public health issue related to opioid misuse and to summarize the recommendations from the Relieving Pain report. The presentation will also provide an evidence-based review of non-pharmacological approaches that are with the scope of practice for nurses.
