About the webinar: The need to Rebalance the gap between opioid dependence and available prescribers resulted in SAMHSA increasing the DATA 2000 patient limit (from 100 to 275).  Opioid dependence is increasingly common and can be difficult to treat.  Although substituted opioids are frequently used to treat opioid dependence in medication assisted therapy (MAT), evidence showing long-term benefits need to balance conditions and credentials. Opioids are associated with important adverse effects that require mitigation.  Opioids need to be relocated as assisting psychosocial therapy because there has not been hard-links to recognized evidenced based guidelines.

This webinar provides clinicians with an approach to using (according to CDC guidelines) and stopping opioids (when indicated) in pain that emphasizes the need to consider opioids only within an overall pain management plan that addresses psychosocial contributors to pain, recognizes that opioids are not first-line treatment for chronic pain and may not be appropriate in all patients, utilizes non-opioid treatments, and routinely incorporates risk mitigation (including naloxone) and reassessment strategies.

The webinar closes with a summary of President Obama’s 3 point plan, CDC guidelines, the new 275 limit and proposed procedural steps to stop opioids fitting like a puzzle.
