When Too Much is Too Much: Reducing Opioid Use Through Multimodal Pain Management For Young People with Sickle Cell Disease

Presenter(s): Jim DeMasi, APRN-CPNP-AC/PC

This presentation will review the latest modalities for those with sickle cell disease when opioids are no longer effective. Epidemiology, etiologies and health provider biases of the frequently admitted sickle cell disease patient will be discussed along with how a global pandemic has impacted care. Multimodal management will also be discussed as this has shown to have a better impact in this group of chronic pain patients.

Opioid Use Disorder in Women

Presenter(s): Kathleen Brady, MD, PhD

Exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Opioid Epidemic in the United States is a dangerous reality that affects all demographics. In this presentation, gender differences in opioid use disorders will be discussed from an epidemiologic perspective. Understanding the differences in trends by gender can help clinicians treat the patient, rather than treating the condition. Neurobiological and social determinants will also be reviewed as the differences vary greatly by gender. Finally, treatment implications will be discussed so we can better understand the impact of tailored OUD treatment.

When It’s Time To Come Down, Weaning Opioids With Compassion

Presenter(s): Megan Filoramo, MSN, APN-C

Compassionate weaning of opioids should include both pharmacological and emotional support. There are options for both slow tapers and abrupt cessation and selection should be based on individualized patient needs and on a shared decision making model. This process should include not only a clear outline of the treatment plan but also alternative treatments for the pain, appropriate pharmacologic treatment of withdrawal symptoms, frequent patient re-evaluation and revision of the plan as needed. To adequately support the patient through this process, it is critical that the patients understand the weaning does not equate abandonment by their clinical team. Opioid tapering does not need to contribute to patient suffering.

PCSS Exchange is a six-session online course focused on the implementation of prescribing medications for treating opioid use disorder (MOUD) in a variety of healthcare settings. The course content is built around the EPIS (Explore, Prepare, Implement, Sustain) Framework of implementation.

Addressing OUD in Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) Communities Part 1: Treatment and Recovery for African American Communities

Presenter(s): Michelle Durham, MD, MPH and Andre Johnson, MA

Between 2018 and 2019, the rate of opioid-related deaths among African Americans increased by 38%. Despite these rising rates of drug overdoses in African American communities, attention to the drug overdose crisis and opioid epidemic has focused primarily on White suburban and rural communities. This webinar will address the unique challenges and social determinants that hinder access to quality care for many African Americans. Additionally, we will review opioid use disorder treatment and harm reduction options, as well as explore the use of peer support services to engage African Americans in appropriate services.
