Target Audience: This activity is designed for pharmacists.

Webinar Description: Controlled substances, including opioids, benzodiazepines and medical cannabis, are commonly prescribed for treatment of chronic pain. Urine drug screens (UDS) are often used in clinical practice to test for the presence of prescribed drugs in an effort to monitor compliance. This application-based webinar will provide participants the opportunity to further their ability to appropriately interpret UDS results through review of real-life patient case scenarios.

Educational Objectives:

  • List causes that may lead to unexpected UDS results, specifically false positives and negatives.
  • Discuss how opioid and benzodiazepine metabolism impacts UDS results.
  • Interpret a UDS reading based on patient history and reported results.
  • Recommend appropriate monitoring based on patient history and UDS results.
