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. 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.
